Product Description
This activity is a simulation of the mark-and-recapture strategy of estimating population size. Students will use a paper penguin population and use an equation to calculate approximate population. They will then graph the changes and analyze their results. Can be done in pairs or small groups. A great enrichment activity on the topic!

Set Up FYI: Teachers will need to copy & cut one set of 30-40 penguins per group.
