Teaching camouflage is a very fun science topic. This topic can be taught very economically. I taught a lesson that taught camouflage using wrapping paper and hand cut butterflies. The whole experiment costs about $3 and all the supplies can be purchased at the dollar store. I hope to use this lesson in my real classroom. I got inspiration for this lesson here: http://ecosystems.psu.edu/youth/sftrc/lesson-plans/wildlife/k-5/camo

Thank you for sharing! That is a neat activity and it is inexpensive which is great! I recently taught a lesson where I did a liquid density column and I spent a fortune on the liquids! Nevertheless, the students really enjoyed it, so it was worth the investment.

I love seeing post like this! As a student teacher having resources like this at all times really helps. I need to make sure I'm well prepared at all times in my classroom.
