This fun activity comes straight out of the Teacher’s Guide for my new book A Place for Fish. It’s also great to use with my book Extreme Coral Reefs!
Take the class outside to play Shark and Minnows. Minnows stand on one end of the field. The shark stands in the middle of the field. Minnows must run to the other end of the field without getting eaten (tagged) by the shark. Have students keep track of how much prey (minnows) the predator (shark) eats during each round.
