This role-playing game is suitable for middle school and high school, as well as 4th-5th grade. Students will experience life as a young alligator as they rotate among 6 different wetland habitats to learn about the challenges alligators face for survival, both natural and man-made. Students will record their alligator's life journey in a diary so that they can write a story about their adventures back in the classroom.
This activity is best included as part of the Myakka Ecosystems study. Access information about this field trip at the following link:
