Bingo! Renewable Resources

Activity Summary
Students play a BINGO game while learning the impact humans can have on wildlife populations. Through activities such as over fishing and oil spills, students learn that without sustainable practices, renewable resources can become nonrenewable. The Lobster Bingo game will demonstrate how human activities and natural events affect lobsters by impacting three of the things they need to survive: the shelter of the reef, food, and clean water.
