11th Grade Ecology/ Resource Games

While it might only look like fun and games in the 11th-grade humanities class, there are deeper lessons to be learned. Today, students prepared their own games to simulate the Yellowstone Moose and Wolf study which investigated and researched the symbiotic relationship between the two mammals and their greater ecosystem. Within the class, we saw spin-offs of classic board games such as "Risk with a Twist" in which students rolled a die to see how many resources they would get in each biome. This simulates the fluctuation of resources within a given environment! #cascadesacademy #ecology #US #creativity
