Sunny Meadows S​imulation 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.
