Description:

In this plant science activity, learners role play as vegetables and weeds competing for nutrients. The object of the game is for the weeds and vegetables to gather as many colored squares as they can. Each paper square represents a different type of nutrient (i.e. green squares represent nitrogen). If a vegetable or a weed does not have at least two of each color square, they “die” from not getting enough nutrients and must step out of the garden. Use this activity to simulate survival and competition in nature and plant-life.
