Product Description
This free item is a board game that comes in 4 sheets of 8.5 by 11 pieces of paper. Teacher must print and then put the boards together with tape in advance. Laminate if you can. Students should play the game in small groups of 3-6. Students roll with a die, or dice if you want the game to advance faster. Students must read each square aloud when they land on it. Reading the square aloud is the learning part of the game. Try and remind the class several times that this step is a mandatory part of the game. I tell the students that if I don't hear them read the square when they land on it that I send them back to start (I roam around the room checking on each group). Each square has some science information and key terms about energy, food chains, energy pyramids, animals, animal dentition, biomagnification, and much more.

Also included are hundreds of unit PowerPoint slides, the bundled homework package, lesson notes, and much more from my Ecology Feeding Levels Unit.

Some squares advance the player, and some move the player the back. The students have enjoyed the game play. I have only had a few people win the game in a class period which makes it more interesting. The game play lasts longer if the students knock players back to the beginning if they land on them. If a student lands on another student than that student must go back to start (Optional). This board game is one small part of my Ecology Feeding Levels that I offer on TpT which includes a 1000+ slide PowerPoint presentation, bundled homework package, and unit notes that all follow the unit slideshow. Please read the full description below and enjoy this free offering. All positive feedback is welcome. This is a nice activity to have in your bag of tricks and use when the unexpected happens. I have used this game board for a sub plan with success.
