Biodiversity Bingo was designed for Temperate Deciduous forest, found in the Eastern US. If you are not sure if your location is a match, please see this
or ask me =) I also have a standard City Living Edition Biodiversity Bingo
if that suits you.
There are 5 traditional 5 x 5 Bingo Cards (so if you have 20 students 4 of them will have identical cards). I distribute a small strip of stickers for my students to use but if they aren't available a magic marker will do! I have found that this is a great activity for getting students to explore and it covers a range of ages.
There are also 8 analysis questions included.
I love getting my students outdoors, digging in dirt, poking under rocks and exploring and you will, too!
Some of the organisms listed are white oak, black oak, maple trees, pine trees, robins, earthworms, woodpeckers, turkey vultures, mushrooms, caterpillars, salamanders, etc.
