This activity, Forest Puzzles: Westside Time Machine, allows students to examine how the passage of time brings a natural cycle of change to all forests. As conditions in the forest change, existing plant and animal species give way and new ones establish themselves. This page is highlighted in the Science Net Links lesson on social trade-offs.
