Constructed Response: Adapting to Your Environment

STEP ONE - Warm-up:


For your warm-up, think about what it is like to live in Michigan and the adaptations people must make in
order to survive here. After brainstorming for a moment, complete the chart below.
Housing (Where do people
live?)

Clothing (What kind of


clothes do people where
because of the climate?)
Food (What kind of food is
common in this place?)

Transportation (How do
people get around in this
area, or do they?)
Jobs (What type of things
do people do to make
money?)

STEP TWO – Thinking Back...:


Remember when we learned about what life was like in the Sahel, Sahara, and in an Oasis? If you need a
reminder look at your packet reading from Chapter20. Work with a partner to complete the chart below.

STEP THREE - Crafting a Response


Imagine that you were just told that you had to leave Michigan and move to either the Sahel, Sahara, or an
Oasis. Write a three paragraph essay about the ways your life would likely change, and what kind of
adaptations you would have to make in order to survive in your new environment. Make sure to include an
introduction, supporting details in the body (at least 3 modifications), and a strong conclusion.
