Description

Spice up your symbiosis lesson with this speed dating activity! Perfect around Valentine's day to review mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism.

In this activity, students are assigned a desert organism card. On each card students will learn what the organism eats, any adaptations it has, what it needs to survive, and what it can offer other organisms. Students will then go on 5 "speed dates" with other students in the classroom. After discussing what they have to offer, they will decide if the relationship is mutualistic, commensalistic, parasitic, competitive, predatory, or if there is no relationship.

A google slide version of the student dating worksheet is provided for distance learning.
