Product Details

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 survive and reproduce equally well, or will there be some “winners” and “losers” in this game of life? As active participants, students will discover:
• The relationship between prey species, predator species and the environment is critical to survival and reproduction.
• Simulations can be used to study and understand nature.

Complete for eight student groups of four. All materials are reusable.
