Farmers’ footsteps makes a great activity to enhance students’ learning about the impact of climate change.
Students are introduced to six farmers who live and work in the mountainous regions of Western Nepal. Each of the farmers has a different story to tell, but they all have a lot in common, they share the struggle to produce enough food to feed their families and to sell at market in a region affected by climate change.
Taking on the role of the farmers, students play a board game where they make their way down the treacherous mountain path to market.
