Animal Survival

What do we all need to survive? What challenges do animals face trying to obtain them?

Activity Description

Students will simulate the strategies of “Predator” and “Prey” as they scramble to obtain food, water and shelter in a game of tag. Herbivores will try to collect enough food and water to survive. Carnivores will try to eat (tag) the herbivores as they travel through the habitat collecting food and water.

This activity centre is part of the Water Protection theme.
