Fishing-Game of life
Target Group: Middle School
Ocean Literacy Principle: 5,6
Simple ball game in which the consequences of overfishing for the fish population is demonstrated.
Each student gets assigned one out of four colors. Each color represents a resource. The ball is passed around between the students. In different rounds, the size of the fishing boats and the preference for certain species of fish differ. In between rounds students discuss the results. Students realize the negative influence of big fishing boats on both the fish stock and other fishermen.
