Wolf Survival

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 activity works best with a larger group of at least 25 learners, but can work with smaller groups of at least 16 learners. Use this activity to discuss predator/prey relationships and the importance of communication for both animals and people.
