Symbiosis Showdown

So I have totally struggled with the types of symbiosis in our science book and was looking for ways to spice up this lesson.  It's something the kids get and there is a great Brainpop video but I wanted a way for it to really stick and for them to have lots of examples....hence Symbiosis Showdown.

There are so many ways to use these cards in your class: 

-individually (as a sort)
- in groups 
- as a game  (my favorite!)
- as research where students learn about a pair and how they work together.

I pass out the cards to my class and call up pairs - they have to come up to the front  of the room and showdown!

I read the description of their interaction and they tell me what type of symbiosis and why!

Works like a charm!

There is more than what is shown below: 

There is also a sheet for the students to put the cards and draw pictures if you want to go that route as well!  So many ways to use this - I know it will be a staple for years to come!

You can click any of the pictures to see this in my store.
