In the following activity, lessons on proportions are reinforced through the
"Capture-Recapture Method."

* A brief history of France and their national symbol, the chicken, is presented.

* Students use a bag of dried Lima beans to model a situation of capturing wild chickens in the woodlands of France, and, ultimately, by taking a small sample of the chickens, they are able to estimate the total number of chickens running loose in the woodlands of France.

* Students employ the "Capture-Recapture Method" to estimate the total number of chickens in these woodlands.

* Students evaluate and consider the data collected to answer a set of analysis questions relative to their mathematical calculations and PROPORTIONS.
