Product Description
Students are assigned a starting population of frogs from one of 11 different ponds in the Central Florida area. They track the health of their population over a 10-year simulated timespan (10 rolls of the dice). Each time they roll, something happens to their frogs that year that impacts the population. Sometimes an alligator moves into their pond and starts eating frogs. Sometimes a hurricane hits increasing the size of their pond and the number of insects their frogs eat (resulting in a population explosion). The purpose of this is to show students how external factors (both biotic and abiotic) can impact a population of organisms in the environment.

Note: You will need graph paper and dice for your students to complete this simulation.
