In this activity, learners make a camouflaged butterfly to hide outside for others to find.
This activity (on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Biodiversity Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into biodiversity.
In this outdoor, warm weather activity, learners use sweepnets to search a grassy area such as a large lawn or field, collecting small animals to find as many different kinds of animals as possible.
In this classic activity, learners investigate natural selection by becoming birds foraging for food on an island.
This activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Temperate Rain Forest Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into biodiversity of a given habitat.
In this online activity, learners create monsters and see how they survived when released into the wild.
In this activity, learners experience firsthand how marine animals' adaptive coloration camouflages them from prey.
Make a camouflage cut-out animal! Using patterned paper or magazine pictures from around the house, use your craft skills to make a paper animal that blends into its background.
In this science and language arts activity, learners study fish anatomy and make their very own 3D paper fish.
In this outdoor activity that can be combined with a hike, learners try to match a "mystery community" by shaking animals out of different trees and shrubs.
In this activity, learners explore the concepts of natural selection and observable traits in a game that can be played at home.
In this activity (p.5-6 of PDF), learners investigate natural selection. Learners discover that natural selection, which takes place over decades, can lead to altered populations within a species.
