Floating Fishes: Fishing Expedition

A referenced PowerPoint is not included, but this lesson can still make an impact with emerging environmentalists. After introducing them to the facts about overfishing, they experiment with a fishing simulation using colored beads and fish-shaped crackers. The instructions suggest talking about buoyancy concepts, which are unrelated to the activity. Leave them out and use this lesson when exploring natural resources or human impact on the environment.
