Migration Migraine

Games and movement help clarify concepts for students. This game helps students understand the migration of birds and animals by theoretically experiencing some of the problems these animals encounter while moving between their breeding and winter habitats. The instructions for the game are very clear. You need only paper plates for the material and a big field or gymnasium for a venue. The discussion questions are pertinent and foster higher level thinking skills. One caveat is that the website suggested for doing research on the animals used for the game is no longer available. You can find what you need by clicking on the species topic at the top of the site.
