What's the Cost (STEM)

Energy Game Learners are given the opportunity to physically trace how far food and products travel from their origin to the student's home.  They learn the connections between how much energy is used and how much pollution is created to bring their food/product to their homes.  Students use different types of maps and orienteering skills to follow their food/product path.  They also have to cooperate in small groups in order to achieve the tasks and complete the journey.
