Woodland Chase

This Woodland Chase lesson plan also includes:

Too many predators or too many prey is not good for a habitat. Pupils learn how the predator-prey relationship serves to maintain healthy populations with a game simulation. Individuals take on the roles of either a predator or prey and play a modified game of tag to model how the populations change within a habitat.
