EARTH DAY or EVERY DAY!
Play this game OUTSIDE with your class, for phys ed or for a special Earth Day activity with mixed age groups. Students learn about animal food chains, and the unique role human beings have in the web of life. Materials are easily found or substituted with what you have in your area (pinecones, seed pods, maple keys, etc.)
Player roles (some optional): carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, Earth keepers, hunters, fire, flood, famine, frost, cell phone tower.
Connect with the elements and local school yard, and learn some cooperative skills.
Play more than once & your students will beg you to play it over and over! Enjoy!
