Flocking for FoodAdd to list Details
In this outdoor beach activity, learners use a variety of "beaks" (such as trowels, spoons or sticks) to hunt for organisms that shore birds might eat.
Rock PioneersAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity/field trip, learners investigate organisms that live along the ocean's rocky coast.
Life in a Nutshell
In this multi-faceted game (on pages 25-35), learners recreate what happens to creatures in the Brazilian rain forest as they grow from egg to adult—especially those that use fallen, empty Brazil nut
Paper Drop Design Competition
Using paper, paper clips, an index card, and tape, teams of learners design flying devices to (1) stay in the air as long as possible and (2) land as close as possible to a given target.
Population GameAdd to list Details
In this outdoor game, learners simulate a herd of deer trying to survive in an area called the "home range." Learners explore the concept of "carrying capacity"—what size population of an organism can
Plant PatternsAdd to list Details
In this outdoor mapping activity, learners explore where plants grow and map plant-distribution patterns.
In this physics demonstration, learners are challenged to insert a straw the furthest into a potato.
The Beaks of the Finches
In this simulation, learners become birds different beak types. Learners use various tools to represent beaks to pick up seeds and place them in a petri dish.
In this activity (p.14-15 of PDF), learners discover the concepts of competition and limiting factors as they relate to plant and animal communities.
Sawing AwayAdd to list Details
In this outdoor activity, learners saw sections from fallen trees, then count tree rings and look closely at patterns of tree growth.
A Balancing Act
In this plant science activity, learners role play as vegetables and weeds competing for nutrients.
