Immunity Challenge

    GeoTroopers

    It’s time to test your science & navigation skills!

    Team Members: _______________________________________________ Team Color: _________

    Use the Challenge Cards to help you find the information needed to complete this assignment.

    First Calculate the waypoint using the information given and then use the GPS unit to find the location.

    Second Complete the task listed on the Challenge Card or hidden in the microcache (film canister).

    All microcaches must be left EXACTLY as you found them paper inside and in same spot!

Don’t have GPS units? Use colored flags with numbers on them or another type of marker that the kids can look for in

    the schoolyard. You might also provide a map of the schoolyard with the numbers listed at each location.

Each tribe received a tree identification book, a Golden Guide: Insects book, a copy of a periodic table, and copies of

    the Ecology and Animal World textbooks. I give tribes 10 to 15 minutes on the day before this challenge to review

    and record notes that they may use on the challenge. You can also provide the “Things to Know” handout on the next

    page.

     Things To Know ...

    Food Chain Shows the relationships of Ecology Review

     animals in an ecosystem. Producers Source of all the food in an

     ecosystem

    Food Web A collection of all the food

    chains in an ecosystem Consumer Organisms that cannot produce their own food; carnivores, herbivores, Biotic The living things in an ecosystem; omnivores, insectivores, and plantivores plants and animals Decomposers Organisms that break down Abiotic The nonliving things in an dead plants and animals; molds, fungi, and ecosystem; air, water, soil, rocks, etc. bacteria

    Atomic Number - # of 1 protons or electrons Types of Trees Symbol & Name Deciduous Trees that lose their leaves H each fall Atomic Mass - # of Hydrogen Coniferous Trees that produce cones and protons + neutrons needles with some needles staying on the 1.00794 tree all year long

     # of Valence Electrons = Family (column) # of Energy Levels = Period (row)
