Fruit Loop Fishing & Fish Schooling

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Thursday, June 3, 2010 at 6:48 PM

Today we learned about 2 fishing methods.  Fishing with a rod and fishing with a net.  We found out which method catches more fish.  We had 2 trials for rod and 2 trials with our net....really in our case our ladle. 

The kids had fun counting the cereal and since I do not purchase Fruit Loops on a regular basis (like never) they really enjoyed them as a treat. 

We also learned why fish school.  To make themselves look bigger so that a predator will not try and eat them.  We did this with our fingerprints representing each little fish within a large fish that we made.  When we hold the picture REALLY far away it looks like one big fish rather than a bunch of little fish.
