In this activity, students examine the size, mass, and growth rates for three species of fish. They interpolate and extrapolate from best-fit models. Students compare the growth rates of endothermic and exothermic animals.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Students enter data from a graph into the lists on their handheld.

  • Image

    Students then make 3 graphs one for each type of fish and use them to notice patterns and make predictions about the mass and location of the fish.
