This activity has students participating as one of three predator species as they attempt to capture as many individuals as possible of four prey species.  Students will be able to observe how population size can vary from generation to generation in response to changing environmental conditions and how various predator species affect populations of various prey species and visa versa.

This lab looks good because it not only goes over natural selection but also includes carrying capacity. Doing a simulation lab this this allows students to visually see what traits would be better at capturing food than others. Thus they can see which organisms are best adapted and which have the greatest chances of surviving.
