Locomotion in Movements in Animals – Class 6 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Movements in Animals

Activity Name: Locomotion in Movements in Animals

Activity Description:

The experiment aims to observe and analyze the different body parts used by animals for locomotion, showcasing their diverse methods of movement.

This experiment will involve observing and documenting the locomotion techniques of various animals and recording the body parts they use for movement.

Required Items:

  1. Observation table (to record the observations)
  2. Pen or pencil (for writing)

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Prepare an observation table with the following columns: Animal Name, Method of Locomotion, Body Parts Used.
  2. Choose a variety of animals to observe, such as insects, birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.
  3. Observe each animal carefully and note down its name in the first column of the observation table.
  4. Record the method of locomotion used by each animal in the second column. For example, flying, walking, crawling, swimming, etc.
  5. In the third column, note down the specific body parts used by each animal for locomotion. For instance, wings for flying, legs for walking, fins for swimming, etc.
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for all the selected animals, filling in the corresponding information in the observation table.

  1. Observe the animals from a safe distance and do not disturb them in their natural habitats.
  2. If observing animals in captivity, follow the rules and guidelines set by the facility and handle animals, if allowed, with care.
  3. Take precautions to ensure your safety and the welfare of the animals during the experiment.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Through this experiment, we can learn that animals have adapted various methods of locomotion to suit their environments and needs. Different body parts are utilized by animals to move from one place to another, showcasing the diversity of locomotion strategies in the animal kingdom.

By analyzing the observation table, we can observe patterns and make connections between the animals’ body structures, their habitats, and their modes of locomotion.
