In this blog post, students will learn how to make their own card game and how games can be used to share knowledge and experiences with others. Focusing specifically on climate change, students can download a printable version of a card game called Phylo: Western PA Edition. By playing the game, students can learn about the various flora and fauna of Western Pennsylvania, as well as experience firsthand how the ecosystem is affected by human intervention. For the second part of the blog post, students can also make their own version of Phylo.
