Sunny Meadows Simulation Game TEKS 5.9 B & C

NOTE: In the explanation, it states that the rabbit is both a consumer and a producer. This is not true, as the rabbit is only a consumer.

See how you score in this simple food chain game that includes fox, rabbits, and plants. This is a good complement to the Oh Deer! game.
