For my STEAM project, I decided to create a board game that reflects some of the ways different animals survive in nature. Each animal has different immunities to certain challenges in the game that coincide with some of their survival adaptations in real life. The goal of the game is to fight through different challenges, such as food scarcity or bad weather, and be the first animal to reach the end and reproduce. We’ve learned about some of the different adaptations that animals use to survive, and how they put a lot of their energy into getting to reproduce. I decided that a board game that uses these adaptations could be a fun way to learn how different animal adaptations can be, and the different situations that each can be beneficial in. Attached are both a picture of the board game and game cards as well as a link to the game rules.
