Plants and Animals in the Smoky Mountains

 

Lesson 4. Project Wild activity "Oh Deer"(1 day)

 

In this activity, students will be animals looking for food, water, and a habitat. They will do this 10 to 15 times and record how many animals survive in each trial. After they have completed the outside portion of this, they will go inside and make a line graph showing the number of animals that survive during each trial. They will then discuss how a reduction of any one of these or an increase in population can lead to animal deaths.
