Students play a game modeled on the classic ‘Tragedy of the Commons’ economic theory to explore the problem of collective action in managing the Earth’s resources. They reflect on the way their short-term self-interest clashes with the long-term interest of the collective. Students identify strategies that will help them to act in the collective interest of the human race and the planet.
The following lesson plan and resources are designed to cover part of the 5th grade content standards for the New Deal. It addresses the successes and failures of the Tennessee Valley Authority. This lesson plan does not address the causes and impact of the Great Depression, which will need to be covered prior to this lesson. It also does not cover all the New Deal policies, which will also need to be covered either before or after this lesson.
