Hungry Reef Fish

Students work in cooperative groups as they engage in an inquiry investigation of the feeding styles of various reef fish with different types of mouth parts, or feeding behaviors. Students will identify a research question/hypothesis, devise an experimental procedure to collect data to answer their question, construct a chart to compare the feeding adaptations of reef fish, and write a conclusion to complete the laboratory activity.
