Science Lesson Lets Students Question, “Is This Prey or Predator?”


Are you the prey…or the predator?

Third grade students took their Science lesson to the basketball courts as they played a great game involving becoming either the prey or the predator.

Mrs. Hubble says, “It was a real hit!”

This engaging game of Tag incorporated what students are learning about food chains in Science.

The kids and teachers split into groups – producers, consumers and decomposers.

The producers were not able to move until a primary consumer – the prey – tagged them. Then, they became a team trying to avoid the secondary consumers – the predators. Once the kids were tagged by a predator, they now had to work together to avoid the decomposers.
