Grade 8 Agenda:
Bugs Data Table
Play four rounds
20 second “hunt” followed by data collection
The hunt lasts twenty seconds
each predator may use one set of tweezers
one hand only
no interfering with other predators
Start the timer and gather as many “bugs as possible
put them in your cup.
Only bugs in your cup count - drops do not and get returned to the landscape
When time is up…
count the number of bugs you captured and record this on your data table
copy the results of your other group members
Calculate the total number of bugs caught
calculate the percentage caught by each team member and make sure they sum to 100
Now count the survivors on the landscape!
dump all the surviving bugs onto the tray.
Separate them by color
count and record the number of each color
total the number of survivors and calculate percentages.
