This simple worksheet takes Ecological Succession and puts it in the format of a Monster Attack.
Directions: Carefully read off each of the choices to the students. Next have the students decide which choice will move back into the neighborhood first. So for example, the monsters have attacked so the criminals will enter the neighborhood first because they thrive on danger. Since the criminals and the monsters are dangerous, they will continue to live together in the neighborhood. Next the Artist will move in because they like a little danger. Next is the Cop and then the Family.
Disclaimer: This activity should not be the sole way of teaching ecological succession. Be sure to use real life situations.
