Game - Habitat Breakdown
Ask the students to imagine themselves as insects. In order to survive they must collect food, find water, find shelter and a place with enough space to live.
Distribute different colored strips of paper around the classroom. The codes are : Red - shelter, Green - food, Blue - water, Brown - space.
In order to survive the activity, each student must collect 1 red paper, 3 green strips of paper, 2 blue strips of paper, and 1 brown strip of paper in 30 seconds.
After all the strips have been collected. see which students have collected the correct number of each color. Those who haven't would be the first insects to die.
Discuss the game and the implications of not having the necessary elements for survival in a habitat. Ask the students to observe the habitat they chose in their local area to determine how the organisms that live there meet their basic need to survive.
