VR Tour For Std. 7 Ch. 7: Weather, Climate and Adaptations of Animals to Climate
What's Included in Virtual tour of this chapter
The average weather pattern taken over a long time, around 25 years, is called the climate of the place. Climate has a profound effect on all living organisms. The regions located in the extreme north and extreme south of the globe are called Polar Regions. We will understand how an animal like a penguin or bear adapts to survive in the prevailing cold climate in a polar region. The tropical rainforest is located near the equator and receives most of the sunlight. We will learn how different animals have developed adaptations to survive in the unique conditions of a tropical rainforest.
Virtual tour 1: Adaptation of animals in the polar regions
The climate at a certain place and time, how much wind, rain, sun, etc. there is, and how hot or cold it is called the weather. The climatic conditions in Polar Regions are always extreme. One such animal which is generally found in Polar Regions is Penguins. They have a body coat which is white from the front and black from the back. Another animal is Polar Bears, snow leopards, mountain goats, mountain sheep, etc. We will learn about their body structure on this virtual tour.
Virtual tour 2: Adaptation of animals in tropical rainforests
Tropical Rainforest has a hot and humid climate and experiences continuous rainfall during the year. In this virtual tour, we will learn about how animals like elephants, toucan birds, monkeys, and frogs adapt to such a climate around the year.
