Animals adapting to winter activity. I think this is a great hands on activity to help the students understand what an adaptation really is. Have the students stick their hand in a bucket of ice water, then when it gets too cold have them put on a rubber glove and try again. They will realize it does not hurt as much. Then you can explain how this is an "adaptation"
