Tackling Your Tackle Box
Skills: Compare and Contrast Observation Presentation and Public Speaking Small group work
Grade Levels: Grades 3-5
Resource Types: Kits
When anglers have the information that helps them select the correct equipment, chances for fishing success are greatly improved. A show-and tell activity and a matching activity familiarize students with common lures and tackle. Using a limited amount of money, students shop in a virtual tackle store to stock a tackle box with basic lures and baits appropriate for catching their targeted fish species. On a second virtual shopping trip, students return prepared with information on the characteristics of their targeted fish species. In a presentation to the group, they compare items purchased on the two shopping trips and share their reasons for choosing them.
