Animal adaptation to their environment
Question:
A rabbit’s ears help the animal to monitor its environment and detect predators. Rabbits can pick up sounds over considerable distances, perhaps up to 3km. Their ears can be rotated 270 degrees to help detect the source of a sound, and can revolve independently to monitor different noises. A rabbit is adapted to detect predator and get away quickly, before a predator can detect and eat him.



An elephant also has big ears, but elephant adopted to hot enveronment and big ears help him to keep the body temperature cool.


A giraffe has very long neck, it helps him to get food on top of a tree.
This armadillo has a carapace, that helps to protect himself from predators.  


 What is the name of the process by which organism, that more adapted to its environment, survive and reproduce more successfully than less adapted organisms?

היי יוליה,

השאלה שבחרת מאוד מעניינת ורלוונטית לתוכנית הלימודים של חט"ב.
הפסקה שלפני השאלה טובה, מנוסחת היטב ועוזרת להבין את הרעיון של איך הארנבות מסתגלים לסביבה שהם חיים בה. כמו כן, הארנבות בסרטון פשוט מקסימים ומתוקים וקשורים לתוכן השאלה.
לפי דעתי, היית צריכה להתמקד רק בארנבות ולא להוסיף את הגמל, הארמדלו, הפילים והג'ירפות. פשוט אין צורך להם והם רק יבלבלו את התלמיד והיה מספיק להזכיר רק את הארנבות. 
השאלה עצמה לא מנוסחת היטב והאמת היא קצת בלבלה אותי, אז הייתי מציעה לך לשפר את הניסוח של השאלה כדי שהיא תהיה מובנת יותר.  
המסיחים בתשובות הם טובים ולא קלים מדי כי יש בלבול אצל התלמידים בין המושגים שנמצאים בתשובות, לכן רק מי שמבין את החומר טוב יוכל לענות
.
בהצלחה,
נרדין .

About your question
I like the animation of the armadillo, the videos, the pictures, the information you wrote before the question and the point on the map. They are useful for understanding the question. The question is related to the everyday life. I agree with Nardine comment about the formulation of the question and her suggestion to improve it. I think for make it more clear you can change the formulation of the question or the formulation of the answers. If you need another check of the improved question, I will glad to help.
Good luck!

The Videos, animations and reactions attracted me very much, I really enjoyed watching videos and animations. I think you wrote before the text with information on the question of her life were very helpful in understanding the subject and what are you going to talk or ask. On the question as said before is very confusing, therefore,I proposes to formulate the question more clearly.

I think there is a direct connection between the text you wrote before the question, videos, images and information about each image and animation, the location on the map and between the question. The additional information was like another example help us to understand the question and what is meant by the question

Translation of the comment
Hey Julia,

I just want to translate the comment I wrote you before, to English.
The question you wrote is very interesting and related to the study curriculum of junior high and to the point on the map.
The paragraph written before the question, is very helpful in understanding how rabbits adapt to their environment. In addition, the rabbits in the video are simply adorable.
Although, I do believe you should have stuck with the rabbits and not add the camel, armadillo, elephants and giraffes. There wasn't a point in adding them and I think they might confuse the students.
I would also advice you to rewrite the question, because its a little confusing.
Regarding the distractions, they aren't easy which is good, because only students who understand the subject well can answer correctly.

Wishing you best of luck,
Nardine

Julia,

The question is well related to the subjects of the students learning program and I think that the distinguishing between the different definitions is important.

You could add sentences that connect between the question parts. For example: additional ways of animals to adjust to their environment are… and then to give the examples (the elephant figure and so on)…

Additional thing: the rabbit video is cute but the phenomena of monitoring the environment is not represented there, or I am missing something…maybe there is a better video to demonstrate the phenomenon.
