Education Makes a Difference SimGame


Why is it important to have an education? What are some of the difficulties you face if you can’t read and write? This Kids 4 Kids simulation game is set in a slum in New Delhi, India, and helps children understand the importance of literacy.

  • Complexity: moderate.  You will need to prepare materials before-hand, but there is little set-up required for the playing area.
  • Designed for primary-aged children, but this game can be played by mixed groups, families, or older students.
  • Game takes about 20 minutes to play, with 10 minutes debriefing and discussion.

Note, the Greek letters in this material are part of the game.
