This fun, physical activity based on “tag” helps children to learn about the relationship between predators, prey and habitat, including food chains.
One group of children are designated as Owls and the rest are Voles. The Owls have to tag the Voles. The game is run several times and each time the number of Owls and Voles is changed so that the children begin to understand the relationship between the predator and the prey.
This activity lasts 10-20 minutes and works best with 15-35 children.
