Think about the different groups of animals and how each has their own characteristic behaviors with their offspring. Choose an animal from each group (e.g. squirrel, robin, bullfrog, painted turtle, grasshopper), research and compare how it’s parental behaviors might affect its offspring’s’ survival.
