## 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
