Overview

Groups of students will receive a species identity as well as population cards to represent their abundance in nature. The teacher will then read out scenarios that disrupt different species populations. As the students’ species is affected they lose population cards. Students will discover the many ways in which human actions affect the natural world.

Background

Our "Wildlife" unit contains various lesson plans, each taking 20 minutes to an hour to complete, and targeted mainly at 4th-6th grade students. A class needn't complete every lesson in the unit, though some lessons do refer to one another and are better done in sequence. Each lesson comes with its own set of objectives and resources as well as suggestions for related activities
