This resource package is designed to help educate students in grades 4-6 about invasive species using Asian carps as an example. The content will cover what invasive species are, why they are bad for our environment, how they are spread, and what we can do about them. The pre-recorded video presentation can be played for students as an introduction, and the activities can be used to deepen their knowledge. The jeopardy game opens in PowerPoint and can be used as a fun way to test what they have learned.
