Where have all the fish gone?

This is a mystery activity for students aged 9-14. Students are given a series of cards containing information. Working in small groups, they are asked to sort out and use the information to make a story. From this, students are asked to come up with an explanation as to why there are no fish in the Akosombo Dam. This activity encourages students to begin to think about an event for which there is no clear explanation.  The spread of water hyacinths due to climate change, as well as poverty, over-fishing, disease and predators will all be possible factors for the absence of fish.  Mysteries work on the basis that there are lots of possible answers. This activity is sufficiently open-ended to allow more able students to come up with a range of ideas.
