Students play a food web game with organisms living in the mangroves.
Each student represents a mangrove organism or abiotic factor. They stand in a circle. One student starts and picks an organism that depends on him. Student 1 is for instance a mangrove and student 2 a mud crab. The crab lives in the mangrove. A thread is connected between these students and the next students picks another organism that it is connected to. The thread moves along with each student. The activity can be found on page 60 of the Students Guide and page 9 of the Educator's Guide.
