EcoChains Arctic Life: A Food Web Game About Climate Change

In honor of Earth Day, we wanted to highlight EcoChains: Arctic Life, a two player game of strategy and survival in a rapidly warming Arctic. Build food chains of Arctic species — such as walrus, narwhal, polar bear and seals — upon Arctic sea ice and experience migration and other effects of a changing climate.

Classroom and teacher packs are available, which include copies of the game (Arctic Species cards, Sea Ice cards), Rulesheet, Lesson Plans.
