Web of Life Game

In this game, learners each represent a different organism in an environment. They build a web during the activity, and discover how all the players in an ecosystem depend on each other. As they play, learners will come up with the connections between different species and their environments. At least six people are needed to play this game, and it could be played with a large group as well.
