Munch Time Procedure

  1. 1. Munch Time TEKS Science (6.5) The student knows that systems may combine with other systems to form larger systems. Science (6.8) The student knows that complex interactions occur between matter an energy. PE-Social Devel. (4.6,5.6 , 6.6) The student understands basic components such as strategies and rules of structured physical activities... Students will: 1. Give examples of and define a food chain and web. 2. Predict & draw conclusions about what might happen if part of a food chain or web is missing.
  2. 2. Game Procedure <ul><li>The game begins with one player (a bass), and the rest of the players (the minnows). </li></ul><ul><li>The “bass” has a nerf ball. </li></ul><ul><li>The object of the game is for the “bass” to “eat” as many “minnows” as is reasonable. When eaten – minnows turn into bass – in the game. </li></ul><ul><li>The “bass” may only take three steps. He/she then tosses the ball at a “minnow,” - attempting to hit the minnow (eat it). </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>When a “minnow” is tagged with the ball, the “minnow” now becomes another “bass.” </li></ul><ul><li>Once the first bass is tagged, the bass may no longer step or walk when he/she has the ball. Bass may run or walk if they do not have the ball. </li></ul><ul><li>Bass may (and should) work together. Example: One bass tosses the ball to another bass, who tosses the ball at a minnow that is standing near his/her area. </li></ul><ul><li>Play continues until there are only a few minnows left. At this point the teacher may stop the game, and ask the bass if they want to continue eating the minnows. (Usually they do). If they do, allow play to continue. If not, question them about why they didn’t eat all of the minnows. </li></ul><ul><li>The game is over when all minnows are “eaten,” or the bass decide to stop “eating.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Follow-Up: <ul><li>What did you feel when you played the game. Is this how a wild animal might feel? </li></ul><ul><li>What strategies did you use to avoid being caught? Do animals use these strategies? </li></ul><ul><li>What strategies did you use to catch other students? Do animals use these strategies? </li></ul><ul><li>If humans were introduced to this game, what rules would you give them? What about disease? </li></ul><ul><li>Give an example of a food chain...a food web. </li></ul><ul><li>What would happen if pollutants entered the food chain? </li></ul>
