This is a great no prep self-checking activity to review limiting factors and carrying capacity. Students need to answer 20 questions to reveal the riddle. For each question they get correct, part of an image is revealed. Once all the questions are answered correctly, students will see the whole image (“What do you call a fake noodle?” “”An im-pasta.”).
Includes questions such as:
The tree has enough space for 40 birds and enough food for 30 birds. What is the carrying capacity?
The aquarium has enough food for 45 dolphins and enough space for 8. How many dolphins can they have?
An ecosystem has enough space for 200 oak trees and enough sunlight for 4000 oak trees. What is the limiting factor?
An ecosystem has enough food for 30 bears and enough water for 60 bears. What is the limiting factor?
