Math and M&Ms® go great together when introducing a modeling activity. Allow your learners to simulate population growth and decay of fish in a pond and share their reasoning for the change in fish. With such an impact we have on our environment, this activity should spark a discussion about the trends affecting the plants, mammals, and other creatures of this planet. Use the other activity listed in materials for a follow-up with population models including equations.
