Product Description
The study of the predator - prey relationship is fundamental to a unit on community ecology. This informational text, critical reading and graphing exercise will:
1. Reinforce graphing skills.
2. Develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.
3. Enhance your instruction during your unit on community ecology.
4. Provide a high quality classwork or homework assignment.

This assignment is suitable for life science and biology students in grades 8 - 12. I use this activity when teaching my unit on Community Ecology.

Students will begin the exercise by reading about the nature of the predator and prey relationship. The relationship is defined and the powerful influence that this relationship exerts on a community is explored.

Students are given data from the classic predator/prey study that involves the Canadian lynx and the Snowshoe rabbit. This data comes from the trapping records established by the historical Hudson Bay Company. Students will graph the data and answer 13 thought-provoking questions.

PLEASE NOTE: This product is also included in my Community Ecology Complete Lesson Plan Bundle

This download provides the activity in multiple formats. You will receive both a Word document as well as PDF files. The worksheet is ready to be copied and passed out to your students, saving you valuable preparation time. A 2-page teacher answer key is included.
