Global warming, the game

I have been worrying about global warming for a while now and I finally did something in science class to prevent it.

It is not anything big, but I sure thought it would help just for people to see what will help the environment and what will not. I made a board game with my partner Aaron and worked hard to make it happen.

In my board game, I wanted people to be able to know what is happening in the world and why. First, we had a large poster board for more spaces to land on and to get more out of it. So we made spaces on the board with question marks on it and if you landed on one you have to draw a card but the bad things is that you could draw a positive or negative aspect. For example, there is a card that says, “you have been unplugging your electronics. Go ahead three spaces.”

Another way our board game was interesting was that we used random colors and made it colorful like our world should look like.

Also, we presented it to our class so they realize that we have tried to have people use the cards in real life. If we act together as a class we can all have many different ways to stop global warming or at least prevent it in our town.

All in all, we are trying to prevent these crises so our children will be able to see what we saw in our teen years. As you can see we made this board game as creative as we could. Also we tried to have people use the cards in real life like unplugging your unused electronics.

I want to have our community to also help stop global warming because if we all act together we can prevent the crises. Also, I want you to help because we are the solution.

Another reason I want everyone to help is because I want to have a great community to live in and have every one be supportive.
