Adding to Cascading Consequences and Stakeholders: Hunter-Gatherer Food Chain

Could the hunter-gatherer food chain feed everyone in the United States? To consider the question, pupils use their research and add to the Cascading Consequences chart based on Michael Pollan's hunter-gatherer food chain from The Omnivore's Dilemma. Scholars also create Stakeholders charts to determine the consequences of food chains.
