Ecosystem Jenga game
This lesson plan is meant to show how an ecosystem is organized and that everything in the environment is interconnected. A population is defined as a group of individuals that can breed with one another. The difference in a population and a community is that a population is made up of the same species. A community is several different populations co-existing together. An ecosystem is made up of different communities. There are many different kinds of ecosystems (forest, fields, ponds, rivers, etc).
During the game, students remove different organisms from the ecosystem (maybe a primary consumer, or producers, or decomposers). Eventually, there has been so many disruptions that the ecosystem collapses.
