Ultimate Invader Project: Part B – Invade The Colonies!

Adaptations can be pretty weird: When camouflage fails , this horned lizard squirts blood from its eye sockets to scare off predators! Check out a video here.

Other examples of amazing adaptations can be found here and here.

In part B of the “Ultimate Invader Project”, you’ll be designing three “Ultimate Invader Trading Cards” that represent organisms that could successfully invade and dominate three colonial regions of your choice using their arsenal of amazing adaptations. Soon, your invaders will battle to become the colonial America’s ULTIMATE INVADER in a brutal contest where only the fittest survive!

Ultimate invader card template is found here.
