Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Density Independent and Dependent Factors Effects on Population

Students will compare and give examples of density-independent and density-dependent factors and how they have an effect on the changing conditions on a lake. After establishing the difference between them, students will play a game where they change several factors and assess the effects of their changes to the environment.
