Demonstrate the Effects of the Environment on Migration Patterns
- Grades 5-7
- Case-based Scenario
This game gives students a fun way to learn about migration, ecology, the forces of nature and the odds of survival in the wild. Each player starts out as part of a flock of 500 geese whose total energy reserve equals 100 points. By rolling the die and following the instructions on the cards, players simulate the full migration of their flock. Along the way, each player’s flock will encounter conditions, both favorable and unfavorable, that actual geese might realistically face during their annual migration. The player who completes the migration with the highest score is the winner. Game is designed for four to five players per board. Developed by Steve Parker. Includes five game boards and instructions. Grades 7–12.
