This The Incredible Journey lesson plan also includes:
Divide your school gym into breeding grounds and non-breeding grounds so that your zoologists can play a game simulating the seasonal migration of shorebirds. Players pick one of the included game cards and follow its directions, which simulate different occurrences in a migratory bird's life cycle. Throughout the game, they face many dangers such as predators, weather events, human-caused problems, and more. Playing this game will bring animal migration to life for kids.
