Survival Island
FB1577
This simple and fun simulation illustrates the point that natural resources are limited and the consequences of depleting them can be disastrous. This game-like simulation is designed to mimic the real Easter Island story-the catastrophic story of a ...
 
Duckweed Population Study
FB1433
Students can witness a population explosion right before their eyes as they nurture and experiment with living duckweed plants. Students start with a small number of plants and watch them reproduce vegetatively into a large matted colony, too numerou...
 
Stick Bug Survival Kit
FB1607
A fantastic hands-on activity where students learn about natural selection, gene pool, population size, and predator/prey relationships. Stick bugs live in a stick forest and tend to blend in with their stick forest surroundings. Forceps birds love t...
 
Lynx Eats the Hare
FB1880
Recreate and experience the classic, interrelated life cycles of lynx and hares by performing this entertaining simulation! Students will be captivated as they simulate and tally the ever-changing numbers of lynx and hares in a given area. The activi...
 
Lynx Eats the Hare Card Deck
FB1884
Recreate and experience the classic, interrelated life cycles of lynx and hares by performing this entertaining simulation! Students will be captivated as they simulate and tally the ever-changing numbers of lynx and hares in a given area. The activi...
 
Predator vs. Prey Kit
FB1746
The action in this fast-paced activity may become intense as student “predators” attempt to capture their “prey.” What happens when different organisms, living in the same habitat, are all trying to survive and produce offspring? Will they all surviv...
 
Frog Pond Population Kit
AP7257
The increase in amphibian deformity rates and decline in amphibian populations throughout the world has become an issue of great concern. This hands-on card game simulates a frog population of a local pond under both natural- and human-influenced sit...
 
Estimating Populations
FB1439
Students receive firsthand experience using the mark/recapture method of counting a population, a technique often used by ecologists and wildlife biologists. First, students capture individuals in their simulated population and “tag” them. Then the o...
 
Natural Selection - Super Value Kit
FB1989
An effective classroom simulation of the classic peppered moth natural selection study. Students assume the role of predatory birds capturing moths on a simulated bark background. Results show students firsthand how the moths’ population directly rel...
 
Gene Pool and Natural Selection Kit
FB1568
Students will simulate a gene pool using different colored pop beads to represent alleles for a genetic trait in a population. Comparisons will then be made between the resulting frequency of alleles in the population with and without selection press...
 
Studying Seed Evolution Using Histograms -
Student Laboratory Kit
FB2011
Looking for a creative way to teach evolution? Study seed evolution by making histograms! Evolution often conjures mental images of monkeys to cavemen to modern humans. In reality, evolution can be studied on a much simpler scale. Measure mass and le...
 
Spontaneous Generation Origin of Microbes Demonstration Kit
FB1437
Prior to Louis Pasteur there was a commonly held belief that living microbes could arise from non-living matter by a “mysterious” process known as spontaneous generation. Pasteur was ingenious in designing “controls” into experiments and his classic ...
 
Coacervate Kit
FB1430
Students actually produce the possible precursors of life-coacervates. The liquid, colloidal suspension produced by students will exhibit some of the same properties of living organisms. When the membrane-like structures surrounding the droplets are ...
 
Biomimicry—Flinn STEM Design Challenge™
FB2132
It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and our world is no exception. Flinn’s Biomimicry Kit explores how form and function of many human products are modeled from attributes observed in the natural world. First, students invest...
