Description:

In this activity, learners perform an experiment that replicates the dilemma faced by birds in acquiring food from a confined area. Learners are given a variety of objects to use as “tools” and explore various ways of extracting the food item from an enclosed shoebox without directly using their hands. Learners compare and contrast which tools worked best and use problem-solving skills to design and develop unique methods for extracting the food item from the shoebox.
