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.
Shark Sense of SmellAdd to list Details
This is an activity about our sense of smell and how it compares to sharks' super noses. Learners will create varying solutions of water and perfume.
Flocking for FoodAdd to list Details
In this outdoor beach activity, learners use a variety of "beaks" (such as trowels, spoons or sticks) to hunt for organisms that shore birds might eat.
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.
Invent an AnimalAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity and game, learners explore how animals adapt for survival through coloration, markings and camouflage.
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.
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.
Owl PelletsAdd to list Details
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.
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
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.
Ocean EcholocationAdd to list Details
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.
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.
In this activity, learners touch and observe skulls of sharks and rays to learn about their diversity (over 400 species of sharks alone!).
What's for Dinner?Add to list Details
In this activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will create a food web and explore food sources for different organisms. They will identify relationships between organisms in an ecosystem.
