In this activity, learners will simulate the interactions between a predator population of gray wolves and a prey population of deer in a forest.
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.
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.
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.
In this outdoor activity and game, learners explore how animals adapt for survival through coloration, markings and camouflage.
In this activity, learners investigate feeding relationships. Learners complete a food web and then make a mobile to represent a food chain.
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 outdoor activity, learners investigate spider webs and feeding behavior, particularly how spiders trap food in their sticky silk webs while not getting stuck themselves.
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
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.
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.
In this activity, learners look at and touch marine animal skulls to compare them and think about what they eat.
In this activity, learners simulate a wolf and its habitat and observe what happens when the limiting factors change over time.
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.
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!).
