Little Auk Survival Challenge

This Little Auk Survival Challenge lesson plan also includes:

A bird's life is one of danger and intrigue as it struggles for survival in sometimes harsh environments. To understand how difficult surviving in the wild can be, children play a simulation game where they act as little auks, birds from the Arctic region. They pair up and attempt to collect food for their young, but wait, glaucous gulls and Arctic foxes need to eat too. What do they eat? Little auk chicks. After this rousing game, the class will collect and graph based on how much food was delivered and how many chicks survived the game.
