Powerful Reflections After Popcorn Generation

 The Golden Eagles had a very memorable and heated discussion during this Popcorn Generation Simulation.
The class was split into three groups/generations and were given a large bowl of popcorn, symbolizing Earth's resources. When Generation 1 was instructed to take all that they wanted, they took almost all of the popcorn leaving only a few popped kernels for Generation 2. Unfortunately, none left for Generation 3. This led into a heated discussion to why a  scenario like this was presented to the class during No Impact Week. Since Grade Three focused on energy, we discussed how the majority of our energy in the world is produced by non-renewable resources and that our behaviors have to change or they will run out. Here are several of the students' reflections after the simulation.
