Description:

In this environmental science activity about biodiversity, learners play a game to discover the effects of non-native species on an ecosystem. This active game is played outdoors in an open field and learners role play as either birds or mice, exchanging seeds or flowers to survive the seasons. A second round of play introduces another species (a cat) to the scenario. This lesson guide includes background information, key words, extensions, and a real life connection to New Zealand.
