Activity Description of "Earth Day Birthday Party"

Title Earth Day Birthday Party
Audience Biology classes, any age
Abstract This is an encapsulated method to teach population dynamics, conservation, and the effects of overpopulation on our planet's resources. The activities are so much fun that we now have them as our EarthDay Birthday Party in all of our Biology classes. The "Popcorn Game" was originally developed at a 1979 Energy and Transportation workshop (the Detroit Connection) at Wayne State University through the Physics Department.
