Description:

In this outdoor art/environmental activity, learners create designs that will attract attention to animals and plants in particular habitats, and then test whether their designs attracted the "right" organisms. Learners come to understand more about how features of animal and plant appearance, including color, shape, and design patterns, serve to attract pollinators and mates, scare away predators, or serve as warning. The activity can be extended by discussing other ways plants and animals attract attention, such as by smell, sound, or sight.
