In this interactive game, students work in three “resilience teams” to plan for resilience to wildfire in their community. A wildfire occurs in the game, and students see how their plans and investments affected the resilience of the community.
Context for Use
This lesson is best used after the wildfire hazard lesson in the HEART Force curricular unit, for students to apply their learning and respond to a hypothetical wildfire in their own community.
Potential lessons to follow include:
What Students Will Do
- Evaluate information on wildfire risk to appropriately use community resources to respond to a wildfire in their community by assessing the causes and effects of a wildfire occurring in their hometown.
- Design solutions to address wildfire impacts using a system model of a community wildfire response effort.
