In their study of animal coloration, the students will be “hiding” animals from themselves. If the students cannot easily spot a fish, they may assume that the fish will be overlooked by another fish or by a preying bird or mammal. If a moth escapes the students’ attention, they may assume that the moth will be likely to escape the attention of its real predators. This activity questions such assumptions. This free selection includes reproducible animal patterns, the Table of Contents, Introduction, and the Index.
