This is the first example of a revenue neutral purchasable DIY Classroom deck!
These cards were researched and images drawn by the Grade 1 students in University Hill Elementary School (Vancouver School District). The organisms chosen are common flora and fauna found in the neighbouring Pacific Spirit park. Congrats to Ms. Kate Foreman (teacher) for doing such a great job!
Note that the game has been play tested for kids 7 and up.

- - -
PHYLO is a project that began as a reaction to the following nugget of information: Kids know more about Pokemon creatures than they do about real creatures.
PHYLO is also: (1) a card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex, and inspiring things that inform the notion of biodiversity; (2) an exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open game development; and (3) FREAKIN’ AWESOME!
