Professor John Endler traveled to Trinidad in the 1970s to study wild guppies. In this activity, learners take part in an online simulation of Endler's work.
Dogs and More Dogs
In this activity, learners play an evolution card game to see how selective pressures can affect an organism's evolution.
Bird Beak Buffet
In this classic activity, learners investigate natural selection by becoming birds foraging for food on an island.
Wolf Survival is Just a Roll AwayAdd to list Details
In this simulation activity, learners will raise a pack of wolves under ten different conditions: without human interference and with human interference.
Chilean Sea Bass: Off the MenuAdd to list Details
In this data analysis activity, learners use data collected by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) to study Chilean sea bass populations.
Wolf Limiting FactorsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners simulate a wolf and its habitat and observe what happens when the limiting factors change over time.
Biological Succession in a Microecosystem
This laboratory activity helps learners understand the concept of biological succession by simulating the process in a microenvironment with various protozoans.
Wolf SurvivalAdd to list Details
In this activity, some learners pretend to be wolves, while the other learners pretend to be the prey of the wolf. The goal of the simulation is to have the wolves work together to survive.
In this activity, learners use a model for how fishing affects marine life populations, and will construct explanations for one of the reasons why fish populations are declining.
Ocean Home: Swimming Fishes
In this activity, learners model, on a human-sized board game, how changes in water temperature may affect fish distributions and, ultimately, fisheries.
Mapping the Spread of HIV/AIDS: Trailing the Pandemic
In this activity, learners act as epidemiologists by mapping the prevalence of HIV/AIDS worldwide.
Sharks: Taking a Bite Out of The MythAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will explore trends in shark populations using shark landing data from the National Marine Fisheries Service.
Population Study Game: Oh, Deer!
In this activity, learners model a population of deer and see how the number of deer changes over time.
Where Do We Choose to Live and Why?
In this geography investigation, learners use a nighttime satellite image to observe areas of light across the United States and to identify patterns and spatial distributions of human settlements.
Mystery of the Disappearing Cottonwoods
Learners will explore the scientific mystery behind a disappearing group of trees by examining data and attempting to explain the decline.
