Adaptation and Variation: Colorado Animals and Plants


Adaptation and Variation: Colorado Animals and Plants (recommended for 3rd - 5th grades)

How do different animals adapt to their environment? What are ways we classify plants and animals? Explore the structure and function, interaction and interdependence of life all around us in this hands-on guided program.

Guided programs at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History on the CU-Boulder campus are designed as interactive and hands-on learning experiences where students use objects, inquiry, and critical thinking skills to discover, wonder and reflect.

Reservations are required 2 weeks in advance for all guided programs. Workshops are offered in conjunction with programs to provide a more in-depth learning experience. For more information and to make an on-line reservation request, visit the museum website.
