Investigating the Environment: Investigating Resource Acquisition and Use.
This unit provides the student with a simulated experience in the development of decision making skills. The acquisition of petroleum resources in a hypothetical republic provides the basic scenario around which the simulation develops. Students are supplied with specific information about petroleum geology, finances, and drilling. With this knowledge, students are asked to make economic and environmental decisions concerning the future of the republic. Over half of this publication is devoted to maps, charts, and illustrations that can be removed from the unit and duplicated. Background information, as well as activity development of the simulation, is included for the secondary teacher. (MA)
