Animal Adaptations

This activity was created by Elissa Hozore of Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School.

In this activity, you will imagine the Finch as an animal and write a program to show how its adaptations affect how the animal acts in different habitats.

Finch Tales

The Finch Tales Program was created to combine the topics of writing and robotics. The Finch Tales Program Guide Parts 1 and 2 provide an outline for implementing the Finch into the writing curriculum. While these guides were originally created for students in first and second grade and mapped to Common Core ELA standards for these grades, they can be modified for students of all ages. Program Guide Part 1 is designed for working with narrative writing.
