Life in an Ocean World

How does the shell color of crabs and the habitat they live in impact the predator-prey relationship? The fourth lesson in a series of five is a game where participants try not to get eaten if they are a prey and try to eat if they are predators. The game uses a question-and-answer format and variations for the unpredictable Bering Sea.
