Product Details

Use this engaging game to help students learn how organisms are related in a food chain or web. Students view illustrations of more than 120 organisms, study their characteristics and determine “who eats whom” as they assemble a food chain from the organisms selected from a deck of special habitat cards. Eventually the food chain will develop into a complex food web as more organisms are selected. Once formed, the food web is analyzed and further studied.

Super Value Game is complete for five student groups. All materials are reusable.
