Print out and play this board game to learn about freshwater ecosystems.

Freshwater Board Game.
Freshwater Board Game

Room 10 of Hastings Central School created the game in 2013. The class had been taking DOC's Freshwater Education Programme, and as part of their learning they had to come up with a ‘taking it further’ action.

Room 10 impressed the course presenters with games they had come up with to teach others about freshwater ecosystems.

The course presenters thought the idea was marvellous, and after a small amount of input from them and help from DOC’s Publishing Team, these games are available to you. We hope you enjoy the games and learn about New Zealand’s wonderful freshwater ecosystems.

Print out the board at A3 size, and follow the instructions on how to put your cards, animal playing pieces and dice together.
