Eco: An Island Simulation Game. [Includes Packet of Population Education Materials].
Yoder, Anita; Landahl, John
These materials, developed for upper elementary and junior high school students, focus on a selected core of population learning objectives. Included are 24 self-contained student activities designed to be integrated into the existing curriculum. The activities relate to population concepts that can be investigated through mathematics, science, social science, and language arts. The investigations cover the concepts of population, birth rate, death rate, doubling time, population density, migration, carrying capacity, and limiting factors. Included as one of the activities is a simulation game involving students in the planning of an imaginary island of Eco. Each activity card is designed to give the teacher a listing of the learning objective, teacher directions, materials needed, and discussion suggestions. (MA)
