 Grid Puzzles:

Ladakh BlueSheep

Ladakh Chukar

Individual Activity:  Take a large sheet of paper. On that draw a grid (square with criss cross lines) similar to the picture shown here. Ensure that the number of rows and columns are the same as in the picture. Start with the square cell in the right corner of the picture. Copy all the details that you see in this cell from the sample picture given into the corresponding cell in the grid on your paper. Do the same for the other cells, moving from one to another in the grid to complete your drawing!

You could also colour the picture and then cut it into squares and have your very own jigsaw puzzle.

Group Activity: You could do the same activity with a group of friends. Each of you can focus on a few squares and reproduce from the given sample picture the details that you see. When everyone has  finished, put the pieces all together to make the drawing.

Who eats what?
To play this game cut each of the 20 nature cards: grain, caterpillar, golden eagle, pika, blue sheep, rosefinch, moth, fish, snow leopard, wolf, cabbage, dead animal, lizard, marmot, chukar, ibex, grass, berries, black necked crane, lammergeier.


Play this game with two or three of your friends. Place the cards on the floor face down in rows and columns in the centre of the circle. Take turns to pick up any two cards and turn them face upwards.

If the species shown on the two cards have a food relationship (one eats the other), then the player keeps the pair. (For example: marmot-grass; wolf-marmot; snow leopard-blue sheep). If they do not make a food pair, then the player puts the cards back face downwards in the same places. This game carries on till as many or all the pairs are made. The player who makes the most number of pairs wins the game. At the end of the game there may be cards left that do not make pairs

 Background information: Some mammals are herbivores (plant eaters), for example, marmot, ibex, blue sheep, and hare. Wolves, snow leopards and golden eagles are carnivores or meat eaters. The lammergeier is a vulture and eats carrion or dead animals. Rosefinches eat berries; lizards eat moths; chukars eat grain; caterpillars eat cabbage leaves; black-necked cranes eat fish.

Take turns to pick up any two cards and turn them face upwards. If the species shown on the two cards are identical and form a pair, then the player keeps the pair. If they do not form a pair, the cards are replaced in their original position face down. The rest of the group has to try to remember the cards from their positions.


The next player upturns any two cards with the aim of making a pair. The game continues until all the cards have been paired. The player with the highest number of pairs wins.
