Graphing the Friendship Game: A Preliminary System Dynamics Lesson
Author(s): Alan Ticotsky, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Personal Growth and Development
  A variation on the original Friendship Game (SS1996-11FriendshipGame) becomes the foundation for an introductory graphing lesson for students in grades K, 1 and 2, adding graphing to the systems tools used and systems concepts learned in the game.

Infection Game For Primary Students (Grades K-3)
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, & Lindsey Buckler Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This lesson is similar to the “The Infection Game” lesson in The Shape of Change. The activity rules are modified for younger children who do not know the concept of multiplication. The handouts and debrief questions are aimed at younger students. In addition, a simple online simulation is available as an extension. Students explore what happens to the number of people “infected” over time. Infections can include the spread of an illness, the spread of a good idea, or the spread of kindness.

Lessons from The Lorax: Using Graphs to Study Change
Author(s): Rob Quaden, & Alan Ticotsky Subject: Cross-Curricular
  In this lesson, students read The Lorax and draw graphs to illustrate the changes that happen over the course of the story. Using simply stated questions, readers grapple with the complex themes in the book and movie. Students will investigate how cycles compete for dominance, and think about how the needs of business and natural resources can collide.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect, Short and Long Term Conflicts. Short-term focus on making money results in depletion of resource and environmental degradation over time and the collapse of the business. Actions and consequences are separated by time.
