Lesson 5: What is a fish's favorite color?

This lesson is part of the unit:

Lesson Description:

Students culminate their knowledge on what they have learned about sight, light, and perception by revising their model of color perception from Lesson 1. After incorporating their evidence and justifying their revisions, students plan and carry out an investigation on the color preference of guppies using a digital simulation. This lesson includes an extension activity for testing with live guppies, if those resources are available. After reviewing their results as a class, students compare and interpret their results by comparing them to summaries of primary research articles investigating similar topics.
