I teach at the college level, but I wanted to learn more about how games are used in the classroom. I thought that it would be interesting to see what resources/games other participants have used and liked in the past. I’ll start (I realize that not all of mine are climate related):
For non-digital games:
I have students do a game on the rock cycle involving dice. The students role a dice to determine what happens to their rock, read a description of what happens, and record what happens to their rock. There are multiple similar versions of this, such as this similar one from SERC: https://serc.carleton.edu/K8GeoTeachers/workshop/activities/135831.html I do a similar activity with the carbon cycle using dice. This is based on work from the following source: https://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/teaching_materials/change_inthe_air/activ...
For digital games:
My favorite is: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~renshaw/eruption/untitled_text/ It’s a simulation of a volcano erupting. Students have to look at different instruments to determine when to evacuate. It can be hard to get it running, though. So be sure to play with it in advance.
