Mountain Lions in Arizona Lesson 1: The Lion as a Predator - Agile as a Cat

Middle school zoologists compare their physical abilities to those of a mountain lion. They record jump height and distance. Next, they measure their peripheral vision and hearing. They discover that their abilities do not even begin to measure up! Learners then discuss why jumping ability, vision, and sound collection are vital adaptations to a mountain lion's survival. This beautifully prepared lesson plan provides everything you need to guide learners through an enlightening experience.
