Elementary ecologists pretend to be migratory hummingbirds. They fly between wintering and nesting grounds, trying to reach a habitat haven. In a musical-chair fashion, some birds will miss out, and are removed from the game. To further affect the success of the birds, you will add migration mishaps or enhancements, such as habitat loss due to construction or concerned citizens planting hummingbird gardens.

Human Population Growth WebQuest
Explore the fascinating study of population growth using real-time online growth calculators, animated maps, and primary sources. Have researchers get out their notebooks and, preferably, one computer for each one or two learners. They investigate growth patterns through a WebQuest, which you should consider providing as a link so scholars can click on the URL addresses instead of type them in.

The Calcumites are Coming!
Students explore the concept of population growth. In this population growth lesson plan, students graph the population growth of a 'calcumite' which is a made up species whose population grows exponentially. Students plot the data over the course of 9 generations and find an exponential function that models the data.

A Population and a Biome
How does the availability of resources affect a population? Eager ecologists explore the answer through a multi-generation population simulation game, collecting and analyzing data, then researching a biome. The end products are an Excel graph of data and a PowerPoint presentation about a particular biome.

The Effect of Natural Selection on Genes, Traits and Individuals
Rotating through five stations, evolutionary biologists explore the question of how changes in DNA facilitate the changes in a population over time. High-quality, colorful cards of animals, skeletons, skulls, and DNA sequences can all be laminated for repetitive use at stations where learners investigate adaptations, morphology, genes, and analogous and homologous structures.
