A game to learn about limiting
8SCIENCE: Tues. Nov. 2nd
Information to know before we start:
• What are the most important things that
animals need to survive?
• In today’s game we will be learning about
three of these: food, shelter and water
• I will divide you up into 4 groups – numbered 1, 2, 3, or 4
• When we go outside, all 1s should stand together on one
side of a line and the rest of 2,3 and 4 will stand together in
one group on the other side of a line
• 1s are deer, and 2,3 and 4 will be the different parts of the
habitat (food, water or shelter) that an animal needs to
• Each part of the habitat has a special symbol: PRACTICE
– Food – hands on stomach
– Water – hands over mouth
– Shelter – hands over head like a point / v – shape
*When we get outside to the plaza by the library, I will show
you where to stand
Game rules continued…
• The goal is for the deer to get the ‘resource’ they
need to survive: MATCHING
– The deer must match with the habitat part they are
looking for and bring them back to the deer side. You
must high-five when you match-up. The habitat
person becomes a deer.
– If a deer does not find a matching partner, it ‘dies’ and
they are recycled to become part of the habitat group
• Each round I will be keeping track of the number of deer that are still
‘alive’, so we can create a graph of our results and see the changes in the
• We are going to play about 10 - 15 rounds

Answer these questions as your Science Journal for
1) From the game, what have we learned about
what animals need to survive?
2) Do wildlife populations stay the same or do they
fluctuate (change a lot)?
3) What do you think would have happened if I
introduced a ‘disease’ (someone that could catch
you when trying to run back to your deer side) ?
