Grade 5 Learns About Conflict

PYP-5 is starting a new unit that focuses on peace and conflict and the resulting consequences.  We started the unit by using a game that simulates the life of a 3rd world farmer and the hardships they face due to conflict.

What is Third World Farmer?

3rd World Farmer is a simulation that lets you experience some of the hardships of farming in a poor country. Will you prosper despite corruption and lack of basic necessities? Or will endless wars, diseases, droughts, and unreliable markets perpetuate your economic disadvantage and spell your ultimate doom?
