I'm co-teaching a permaculture course this fall, and the other teacher and I really like using games while we 'teach'. The students love it also, (as evidenced in 'best of yesterday' info...).
I've been trying to think of some good ecology games for our topic next weekend. I like a 'cougar-deer' Mother May I, but am trying to think of something that incorporates plants too. As I'm brainstorming about it I thought I'd ask others. Ecology is such a big topic, applied to things like agroforestry and forest gardens.
Any teachers have good games for that one?

I've been checking out the Learning Herbs website and was wondering if this game is very fun or not. It might not be exactly permie, and it's not as cool as the DIY games discussed here, but just a thought or an idea for down the road..
WOW. This is genius. Way more interesting than a phone screen.

My husband and his friend once presented an entire lesson on foundations and drainage using only caveman grunts instead of words. I've done that on masonry or digging demos, and it's very effective if you're in a lecture/questions rut. Gets people out of their heads and observing with hands, eyes, bodies. And laughing.
