This worksheet is a combination of a science lesson and reading comprehension activity. Students read a short description of how animals use
camouflage and then answer a series of questions on that reading. Additionally, there is an optional secondary activity where students take a lizard
template and colour it to help it blend into its surroundings around the classroom or playground. This second activity can be done as a contest to see
how creatively and effectively students are able to camouflage their lizards.
The reading portion could be read as a class or in small groups to ensure all students are able to understand some of the science terminology.
Rather than use the templates for students to colour for camouflage, students could create their camouflage creature from the ground up, giving them many more opportunities to think about things like shape and material and how the might also help with camouflage.
