The Camouflage Game

Students analyze the numbers of each color of caterpillar collected, and discuss reasons for this. PowerPoint presentations may be made. This lesson requires the teacher to set up a situation prior to teaching. Red and Green "caterpillars" are cut from yarn and scattered in the grass. Students are assigned the role of predator and have 45 seconds to collect as many caterpillars as they can.

I love Lesson Planet because it connects me to great websites that have a wealth of information for myself and students. For example, I recently found two great history websites that have a huge amount of pictures--a great place for my foreign language students who need visual aids to comprehend American history. I love Lesson Planet because the lessons are often easy to adapt for a variety of learners.
