Deer Me: A Predator/Prey SimulationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will simulate the interactions between a predator population of gray wolves and a prey population of deer in a forest.
Silent StalkingAdd to list Details
In this outdoor game, learners role play predator and prey to explore the importance of keen hearing and silent stalking skills in the animal world.
Food Chains and Webs
In this activity, learners investigate feeding relationships. Learners complete a food web and then make a mobile to represent a food chain.
Tide Pool Survival
In this activity, learners observe tide pool animals in a touch tank to consider how they survive.
Race for Survival
During this interactive "survival" game, students learn about the importance of camouflage and how it helps animals to blend into their surroundings, as either predator or prey.
In this activity (page 7 of the PDF), learners will investigate the contents of owl pellets. Learners will discover how owls digest their food as well as the kind of animals they eat.
In this activity, learners make homemade journals featuring seashell rubbings. First, learners transfer the texture of a seashell onto a piece of paper using a crayon.
Web It!Add to list Details
In this outdoor activity, learners investigate spider webs and feeding behavior, particularly how spiders trap food in their sticky silk webs while not getting stuck themselves.
Life in a Nutshell
In this multi-faceted game (on pages 25-35), learners recreate what happens to creatures in the Brazilian rain forest as they grow from egg to adult—especially those that use fallen, empty Brazil nut
Evolutionstechnik or Selection and Variation in the Egyptian Origami Bird (Avis papyrus)Add to list Details
In order to examine the random nature of mutations and natural selection, learners "breed" clutches of Egyptian Origami Birds (Avis papyrus) using random number generators (dice and coins) to mutate s
Feeding Facilitation: A Lesson in Evolution and SociobiologyAdd to list Details
This is an outdoor activity designed to demonstrate evolution of feeding behavior in flocking, schooling or herding animals that maximizes allocation of food resources and enhances survival.
Scent TrackingAdd to list Details
In this wintertime outdoor activity, learners role play wolves tracking their prey by following scented trails.
In this activity, learners explore why animals, specifically dinosaurs, live in families.
Wolf Survival is Just a Roll AwayAdd to list Details
In this simulation activity, learners will raise a pack of wolves under ten different conditions: without human interference and with human interference.
Use echolocation to find others and experience how whales’ senses have adapted to suit their environment. In pairs, learners are blindfolded and use containers filled with marbles to find each other.
Marine Skulls CartAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners look at and touch marine animal skulls to compare them and think about what they eat.
Wolf Limiting FactorsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners simulate a wolf and its habitat and observe what happens when the limiting factors change over time.
Wolf SurvivalAdd to list Details
In this activity, some learners pretend to be wolves, while the other learners pretend to be the prey of the wolf. The goal of the simulation is to have the wolves work together to survive.
Build a Coral Polyp
In this activity, learners build one or more edible coral polyps and place them together to form a colony.
Exploration TankAdd to list Details
This is a guide for facilitating interaction at a touch tank with marine animals. The instructions are for setting up a display in an informal science center, but could work anywhere.
