Grade 5 Learns About Conflict

PYP-5's new unit, Peace on Earth, focuses on conflict and the consequences societies face.  They played a game that simulated 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 neccessities? Or will endless wars, diseases, droughts, and unreliable markets perpetuate your economic disadvantage and spell your ultimate doom?
