This activity is about the relationship between habitat and wildlife. After reading and discussing a story on prairie potholes and waterfowl, learners will use hula hoops, packing peanuts and other materials to simulate prairie pothole destruction as a result of climate change and the impact of habitat loss on the waterfowl population. Learners will be able to recognize the correlation between the ... Full description.
