Carolina EcoKits®: Habitat Degradation (with perishable)

Item # 187208P Exclusive

Grades 9-12. In this activity students work in groups to study how an organism responds to habitat loss. Students perform an experiment using choice chambers to determine the habitat preference of pill bugs. Then they decrease the size of the pill bugs’ desired habitat and record the observed pill bug behavior. Students apply their observations to real-world habitat degradation due to human land use. Kit accommodates a class of up to 32 students working in groups of 4.
