How much do you know about the wildlife populations in your state?
Do you know how animal populations are maintained? Who makes that decision?
What do they eat? All of these questions will be explored by using science and math.

These task cards are truly interdisciplinary as they integrate realistic data about an animals life span, population numbers, weight, reproduction rates, etc. The next time a student says "when are we going to use this math?" pull out these cards and they will understand why...

This task card sample includes 6 word problems about the moose and is specific to Ma and Vt data. These could be used as enrichment for upper elementary students or as on-level problems for middle school math students. Task cards include Fun Facts about the animal as well as some higher-order thinking questions to prompt a larger discussion. This would make a great center or could be used as a whole class activity.

If you like this product please consider buying the entire set, which includes questions about moose, deer, and black bears.

Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, “The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.” “For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.”
