This engaging tag based game visually illustrates the process of biomagnifcation and the movement of pollutants move through food chains. As students develop an awareness of how chemicals can accumulate and threaten the health of apex predators like Orca’s they will also begin to realize that humans also consume seafood which could contain the same toxins.
This resource supports science units examining food chains and food webs, interactions in ecosystems and pollution impacts on the environment. The game can also be used to illustrate the connection between environmental health and human health. Pesticides are one example of a pollutant that can be reduced in ecosystems through citizen stewardship. A class could undertake a project that examines pesticide use in their community and develops a campaign to encourage citizens and municipal offices to switch to products that do not harm the environment.
