Predator or Prey?

Our Nature and the Environment lessons help to raise awareness about the environment around us. Today we were thinking about predators and whether humans were predators or not. Most of the pupils didn’t think they were, although they confirmed they enjoyed eating chicken, fish, beef, McDonald’s, etc. There was a sudden realisation that the meat from supermarkets comes from animals and that humans are one of the biggest predators! The pupils tried hiding, pretending at being prey, but although they managed the hiding – in some brilliant places – they failed to be silent and still, so would have made excellent meals for any predators on the prowl!
