A blind fold, tablets, Internet access, access to a safe vegetated area or a regularly decorated classroom
Students will be asked to name various different wildlife, whether the students believe them to be prey or predatory and asked if they know the definitions for the activity vocabulary
Students will be split into groups and given their tablets and, using the wildlife named by the students, will use the Internet to determine whether an animal is a predator or prey
Using the information gathered from the Internet, the teacher will ask students what they found and categorize the animals into prey or predator on the board.
As a class, students will discuss what adaptive traits these animals could have for their particular environments.
Have a teacher-lead discussion with the class that goes over the Thicket Game. Have the students explain what made hiding easier, how close they got to the "predators", why it is important for animals to have these adaptive traits.
