  214. 214. • Rules for the Simulation; – Tokens are the plants (White Seeds). – Copepods (Largest group) pick up seeds and put them in their cup. – If a small fish (Three Students) tags a Copepod they get all of their tokens. Copepod reproduces and lives again. – Large fish (One Student) eats small fish and collects all of their tokens. Small fish if eaten must wait 1 minute before starting over. – Teacher eats large fish at end of class and accumulates all of the tokens / pollution.

  219. 219. • Follow-Up to Simulation! – Describe the flow of the seeds (Pollution) through the players. • Copepods • Small fish • Big fish • Top Predator – Why would you want to monitor the amount of fish you eat in a month?
  220. 220. • Follow-Up to Simulation! – Describe the flow of the seeds (Pollution) through the players. • Copepods • Small fish • Big fish • Top Predator – Answer: The pollution biomagnified through the food chain as the copepods were eaten by the small fish, and the small fish were eaten by the big fish. The top predator accumulated the most pollution.
