Description: Inspired by time-lapse photos of decaying fruit, this activity has been adapted to a ‘do it yourself’ version. Pupils can collect pictures or even use real items to assemble their own ‘game boards’ and try the activity out on each other. In many cases the process of making the game is in itself a fruitful activity, which stimulates thought and discussion. We have provided a sample board with pictures as a starting point for this game.

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will be able to describe rates of decay in detail, research and narrate their findings.
