You are going on a class field trip to learn more about lake ecology! It is a great day to get your feet wet and collect some bugs and other creatures! As a class you are going to learn about the lake ecosystem, pollutants in the lake and collect as many dragonfly nymphs, aquatic insects, and fish at possible. Each student or group of students is given a net to scoop up the creatures. Please remember not to hit each other on the head with the nets! Home Page
The goal of the game is to collect as many lake creatures as possible. The creatures are worth varying point values. To play the game you have to roll a die and then go however many squares the die indicates. Once on the square you have to answer a question. If you answer the question correctly, you can collect the card and add the points to your total. Your goal is to collect as many as the creature cards as possible and obtain the most points. If you collect a lake card you receive no point,. If you collect a pollution card, click on the bug holding the no pollution sign. Then read the part of the table that coincides with the pollution card. If you land on a square where the card has already been taken you have to answer a question and then move to the next square that still has a card and answer another question to turn this card over. To win the game you have to obtain as many creatures as possible and then count up the point value at the end. Whoever has the most points wins! Return
