Animals that Live in Groups
By Eleanor Hoover
Dolphins are adapted to live in the water/ocean their entire lives. They are also mammals so if they don't go to the surface regularly, they would drown. Did you know that dolphins are warm-blooded and have a blubber to keep them warm?
Dolphins communicate by clicking and whistling. Each dolphin has its own sound, kinda like we have names. That's how they know who is who. They also communicate by using echolocation.
Dolphins protect, play, travel, hunt, and swim together. But, they don't eat food together.
Living in a group helps dolphins survive because if one dolphin is asleep when a predator is near the other dolphins can wake he/her up.

Lions are adapted because their prides have females and males. That is good because the females can hunt while the males protect their territory.
Living in a group helps lions survive because if a lion is hurt when a predator is near, some lions can protect the hurt lion, while the others fight.
Lions communicate by roaring. Their roar is so load that it can be heard 5 miles away!
Lion sometimes risk their lives to protect a lion cub or another lion from a predator. That helps the pride.

When a predator is near an elephant can help a baby elephant find shelter, so the predator doesn't eat them.
Living in a group helps elephants survive because if one elephant dies the herd will still have enough members to fight off predators.
The behemoths communicate with low-frequency rumbles, that can travel more than a mile. we think that the elephants create them by purring or by singing like us humans.
Elephants adapt to survive by using their huge floppy ears to keep them warm, because where elephants live it is very hot.
if you finish early, or want to do extra, choose one or more animals and make more pages!!! Be sure that your first 3 pages are EXCELLENT first though!
