PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity requires students to step into the role of a team of ecologists who are part of a group determining how to utilize a 400 acre property recently donated to the community. Students determine how to use the land: hunting, fishing, wildlife preserve, campground, trails, or timber harvest. They also have the option of building a dam to flood land to create a lake for fishing. Students then evaluate the impacts of their choices on the wildlife, trees, number of visitors, and financial gain or loss. Final results are presented as a large poster.

This activity includes a detailed description of each land use and project description for students, handouts for all calculations needed, two student journal prompts, a team summary prompt, reflection questions, team map outlines, a teachers timeline with hints.

This activity is my adaptation of a Project Learning Tree activity. It was not endorsed or approved by Project Learning Tree.
