Ecosystem$14.99Add to cart
Rodger recommends using Ecosystem as a means of introducing ecology in biology or life science. It allows students to see how a basic ecosystem functions on a simple level along with letting them see some basic interactions such as food chains and food webs. Gameplay and rules are simple to get you off and running!
-Rodger, Retired Science Teacher

Mariposas$49.99Add to cart
Every spring, millions of monarch butterflies leave Mexico to spread out across eastern North America. Every fall, millions fly back to Mexico. However, no single butterfly ever makes the round trip.
Mariposas is a game of movement and set collection that lets players be part of this amazing journey.
Mariposas is played in three seasons. In general, your butterflies try to head north in spring, spread out in summer, and return south in fall. The end of each season brings a scoring round, and at the end of fall, the player with the most successful family of butterflies — i.e., the most victory points — wins the game.
Players: 2 – 5
