Experience resources:

Extreme Environments


In this virtual experience, students will…

  • Identify different types of environments on Earth and explain how living organisms have adapted to survive in these environments.
  • Describe various types of adaptations that different animals have developed to survive in extreme environments.
  • Evaluate the impact of human activities on different habitats and suggest ways to conserve and protect them.

Lesson overview

Life can be found in every environment on Earth, even in areas that humans wouldn’t be able to live. While humans are able to adapt their behavior and clothing to suit new environments, many animals have evolved special adaptations to ensure they survive the conditions they face in their habitats.
