Game Playing with a Bite! An Evaluative Simulation. Instructional Activities Series IA/S-9.
Johnson, Robert G.
This activity is one of a series of 17 teacher-developed instructional activities for geography at the secondary-grade level described in SO 009 140. This activity employs a simulation approach to investigate factors influencing industrial locations. Students design proposals intended to attract specific industries to specific cities. The flow chart provided for the four-day game strategy suggests that the students be divided into several groups. Each group assumes the role of a city Chamber of Commerce and designs a proposal to attract an industry. This involves students in designing their own city in order to attract the industry. After proposals are written, groups assume different roles--they become manufacturers. Students then develop criteria for a manufacturer's location. After proposals are ranked, students engage in an evaluative discussion. (DE)
