These waterlilies have adapted to maximize their collection of sunlight in a watery environment 



An adaptation is any structure or behavior that helps a living thing (plant or animal) meet its needs and survive in its environment.  Plants and animals have adapted to an amazing variety of environments.  There are adaptations that help organisms keep warm, collect water, get food, defend themselves, and protect themselves. Techniques include camouflage, migration,  flocking, and schooling.  Can you find one?  Please show us an image and explain the adaptation you discovered.
