In this unit of study, students act as scientists as they observe how young rabbits look similar to and different from their parents. Students continue to study rabbits, and other animals, when they look at patterns of behavior displayed by parents and their offspring to ensure the survival of the offspring. Students observe how rabbits process information by using their senses and how the structure and function of the rabbit’s coat and feet help this animal survive. Inspired by what they have learned, students design a product, which solves a problem by copying nature.
