The Squirrel Game

Description

The Squirrel Game provides an interactive way for students to learn about small mammal ecology and predator-prey relationships.  The idea is that red and gray squirrels have different food caching strategies, but both must avoid predators in order to survive.  The goals of this program are to help students understand differences in behavior between red and gray squirrels, teach students about the diets of red and grey squirrels, help students understand predator-prey interactions, and to make outdoor play fun.  These goals are accomplished by engaging the students in a tag-like game where they become the red and gray squirrels and have to store their food for the winter while simultaneously avoiding predators like foxes, owls, and coyotes. This game was adapted from a program developed by Shelburne Farms
