Through a small group simulation using probability, students explore how different population growth rates are impacting biodiversity levels
In two simulation games, students determine individual short-term consumption strategies that will maximize resources for the entire group.
Students share a bowl of goldfish crackers to simulate even and uneven consumption of limited resources.
"The activities not only bring out important content, but they also provide real-world context for environmental, population and sustainability issues. They engage participants in very thought-provoking and critical-thinking discussions.”Helen de la Maza, Environmental Educator, Irvine, CA
