Activity of the Week

If you don't have flash on your computer, you must download it first.  You can do that here.

To answer the questions below, please check out the activities below:

  1. Food Chain Reaction -A lot of people don't realize just how much the survival of each plant and animal affects the balance of a food web.  Play this game to learn more.

  2. How Wolves Change Rivers -In 1995, the US Fish and Wildlife services reintroduced wolves back into Yellowstone National Park.  This fascinating short film explores how the reintroduction of wolves has had a far-reaching impact, not just on the entire ecosystem of Yellowstone, but even on the land and rivers themselves.

Here's a 3rd activity on Food Webs that's a bit more challenging:

Fun with Food Webs -See if you can put all of the plants and animals in the correct spots for three different types of food webs- meadow, arctic, & pond habitats.
