What threats do lemurs face in the wild? What can we do to help? How do our actions affect wildlife closer to home?

This game takes about 30 minutes to play and covers topics in science and language arts. Provided by the Lemur Conservation Foundation, Growing, Growing, Gone only requires an open space or outdoor area, a set of 12 hula hoops, and a paper and pen to record data. Students try to keep both feet in a hula hoop while different scenarios are read to them and hoops (symbolizing habitat) are either added or taken away.

Developed to accompany the Ako children’s book series, each of the six books feature a different type of lemur, from Bitika the baby mouse lemur to No-Song the Indri to Bounce the White Sifaka.

Use the Teacher’s Resource Guide to learn more about lemurs and gain background information before carrying-out the lesson.

See Growing, Growing, Gone to view the lesson. All 21 lemur lessons are also available for download at
