The Balance Within an Ecosystem : More Fun and Games in 4R







  After Mincrafting in our Ancient Civilizations unit, and Cataning it up as various governments, today we are trying to knock each other out of an ecosystem.

In this game https://www.brainpop.com/games/foodfight/Ecogame.swf , students have to carefully create a balanced ecosystem so that it will support a species of animal.

There are wildcards that are sometimes available. They can wipe out a species of animal or plant, or create a water hole, thereby changing the balance within the ecosystem. Other Wildcards are Drought, Fur, Feather, Fire, Fungi, Worms and Viruses.
