### Oh Deer! A game to learn about limiting factors

Information to know before we start:
• What are the most important things that animals need to survive?
• Food
• Shelter
• Space
• Water
• In today’s game we will be learning about three of these: food, shelter and water
Game rules
• 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 survive
• 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 / upside -down 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 run to the other side and match up with the habitat part they are looking for. You must high-five when you match-up.
• After high-fiving, run back to the deer side with your resource. The habitat person becomes a deer.
• Do not tell anyone what resource you are looking for.
• If a deer cannot 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 deer population
• We are going to play about 10 - 15 rounds
Finally…what happened?
