Watch Animal Prosthetics Help Human Amputees Move Again. Answer these questions on your Beauty and the Beak See, Think, Wonder student sheet. You'll discuss them in class:

  • In what ways did prosthetics help, or even save, some of the animals in the video?
  • In what ways could humans or animals adapt if they lost part of their body, or lost a sense that we view as essential?
  • How can technology enhance the lives of animals that might have been injured or born with an abnormality that affected their functioning?
  • In what ways does the design of the prosthetic matter in how it works for the animal?

This esheet is a part of the Beauty and the Beak lesson.
