Living Lands — Forest and Town Simulation 

Author(s):
Anne LaVigne, & Jen Andersen 
Subject:
CrossCurricular 

This lesson with multiuser simulation explores the management of a national forest and its surrounding towns. Student teams log in and make decisions for a local town or for the surrounding forest that has a large level of accumulated fuel. The decisions of individual teams impact all other teams. Damage from potentially catastrophic fires looms, and students must try to manage the situation to protect the area, both now and into the future.
