Grades 9–12. Through a card game, students model the population changes of 9 species in a temperate forest community. They explore how changes in ecosystems due to factors such as habitat loss, pollution, overharvesting, climate change, and the establishment of an invasive species can lead to a loss of biodiversity. Next, with the freedom to change any aspect of the previous model, students design a new version of the card game using a different community. Then, they exchange, play, and critique each other's games. Kit contains enough materials for 8 groups, includes 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction, and helps address Next Generation Science Standards* HS-LS2-6.
