This is a hands-on, highly engaging simulation activity where students experience what it is like for an ecosystem to undergo a major change. It covers topics such as predators and prey, interdependence, and changes that impact an ecosystem.
It is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards and is recommended for grades 4 and 5. I have used it in both grades and it is always a huge favorite!
The download contains the activity instructions, prey cards, a student reflection printable, and a checklist for grading.
Thank you so much for looking. Please let me know if you have any questions about the product.
