Deforestation Board Game – Day 2

.
Summary:
Today in class, students were asked to play the board game again. But this time, they were encouraged to use sustainable forestry practices through the addition of a new law: for every tree that did not grow back by the end of the game, the student who cut that tree was fined $200. In most cases, this was all the encouragement they needed. Instead of clearing large swaths of land, students zigzagged their way across the forests, cutting only small patches and leaving the ecosystem intact. It wasn’t a perfect solution. Students made a little less profit than they did on Monday, and the game moved a bit slower. But the squirrels will thank us, and so will our grand-kids.
