Hiding in Plain Sight (for Third Grade - Fifth Grade)

In this activity, students will investigate how camouflage can help an organism survive and reproduce in its environment. Students will design a camouflaged organism that can survive being “eaten” by a predator. A simple predation simulation will be used to demonstrate how animals that blend into their environment are better suited to survive a predator on the hunt.
