Carolina EcoKits®: Habitat Degradation (with voucher)

(in stock)


Grades 9-12.

  • Observe animal behavior when a habitat area is decreased
  • Build models to collect, analyze, and graph data
  • Apply observations to real-world scenarios

In this activity students work in groups to study how an organism responds to habitat loss. Students perform an experiment using choice chambers to determine the habitat preference of pill bugs. Then they decrease the size of the pill bugs' desired habitat and record the observed pill bug behavior. Students apply their observations to real-world habitat degradation due to human land use. Kit accommodates a class of up to 32 students working in groups of 4 and includes a voucher to request the perishable material later at your convenience. Contact us or return the voucher at least 2 weeks prior to requested delivery date to ensure prompt arrival of material.
