My students need these materials (Sheet Stck12, PVC Pipe Pipe, and Light-Duty Swivel Plate Caster ) to bring our hands on political simulation to life under the sea, on land, in the air, and in space.
Our students come from across the city and span all races, genders, socioeconomic backgrounds, languages, cultures, religions, and beliefs. We are preparing for a global workplace that we know will be diverse.
We are reimagining school to prepare students for a global reality.
Starting in kindergarten, students are building toward bilingualism in Spanish or Mandarin Chinese. Our Quests take students on challenge to solve real world problems using science and social studies skills and present their solutions to experts working in the field.
Fourth - Seventh graders will have the opportunity to save the world from problems that our current politicians and world leaders are struggling to solve. In the World Peace Game, created by master teacher John Hunter and the World Peace Foundation, students divide into five "nation teams" to serve in leadership roles such as Prime Minister or Chief Financial Office; or into four critical global agencies like the United Nations or the World Bank. They are given a set of interconnected problems to solve in a certain time frame for the survival of this planet.
Each plexiglass level represents underwater, sea level, air, and space that will visually present to students the global connectedness of the economic, social, and environmental crises and the imminent threat of war that they will be trying to solve.
This project will help us build the game board to represent our fictional world and bring each of the dozens of interconnected problems to life. The pvc pipes will hold up each level so that they are separated from one another and the casters will allow us to roll the game board around the school for play and into safe places when it is not in use.
