Activity Idea - Food Hunt

Find about 25 small, similar items (Lego men, quarters, bottle caps, etc), these are now your food.  Designate one room in your house the hunting zone and leave that area. Have another famliy member hide your food aroudn the hunting zone. When they are finished set a stopwatch and see how long it takes you to find all your food items. Try again with a different hunting zone, or switch places and hide the food for the other person. 

Watch This - Bats for Breakfast

This National Geographic video shows what it's like to hunt for bats. Wow! 

Activity Idea - Illusion Math 

Go back to the Lunch and Learn video and play the Sanford food illusion again with a different number. Did it still work? Play again if needed, and see if you can figure out how the ilusion works. Hint, it's just math.
