In this activity, learners examine how brine shrimp populations can survive in some of the harshest environments.
Caution! Wildlife Crossing
In this design challenge, learners use their creativity and imagination to design and test a wildlife crossing for their favorite animal.
Skin, Scales and Skulls
In this activity, learners examine body parts (including skin, scales, and skulls) from fish, mammals and reptiles. Questions are provided to help encourage learner investigations.
Habitat Adaptation MatchupAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners work in small groups to match various marine animals with their different environments.
In this activity, groups cut out and sort cards showing items recovered from a crash landing on the Moon. The 12 items range from food and water to rope and matches to a self-inflating life raft.
Race for SurvivalAdd to list Details
During this interactive "survival" game, students learn about the importance of camouflage and how it helps animals to blend into their surroundings, as either predator or prey.
Variation GameAdd to list Details
In this set of outdoor games, learners play the role of monkeys that are trying to get enough resources (food, shelter, and space) to survive.
In this activity about dinosaurs and survival, learners use scrap materials to create a miniature dinosaur habitat that includes a food source, water source, and shelter.
Evolutionstechnik or Selection and Variation in the Egyptian Origami Bird (Avis papyrus)Add to list Details
In order to examine the random nature of mutations and natural selection, learners "breed" clutches of Egyptian Origami Birds (Avis papyrus) using random number generators (dice and coins) to mutate s
Bird Beak Buffet
In this classic activity, learners investigate natural selection by becoming birds foraging for food on an island.
Feeding Facilitation: A Lesson in Evolution and SociobiologyAdd to list Details
This is an outdoor activity designed to demonstrate evolution of feeding behavior in flocking, schooling or herding animals that maximizes allocation of food resources and enhances survival.
Plants: Hanging ToughAdd to list Details
In this hands-on activity, learners will become familiar with the special adaptations of rainforest plants and discover the conditions needed for tropical trees to survive along with what can impinge
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.
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.
Introduction to Ocean Zones
In this activity, learners will create a diagram of the ocean zones and determine what organisms live in each zone.
Eat Like a BirdAdd to list Details
Birds' beaks are designed to allow birds to get the most of whatever food they need. In this activity, learners get an idea of how different beak shapes suit different food sources.
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
Fish Family IdentificationAdd to list Details
In this game, students will become familiar with fish shapes, learn that fish within a given taxonomic family have similar body shapes, and discuss how different body shapes enable fish to survive in
What Does Life Need to Live?
In this astrobiology activity (on page 11 of the PDF), learners consider what organisms need in order to live (water, nutrients, and energy).
In this online activity, learners create monsters and see how they survived when released into the wild.
