This is a little game I made that we play in my Grade 5 Social Stuies class that uses Google Apps to keep track of the progress. It is similar to Settlers of Catan in many ways. Students join one of three groups (Settlers, First Nations and British) and make decisions as to how they will run their groups and interact with other groups.
With each turn, students make major decisions as to how to use their resources. There are historical real world crisises that each group will face. How they choose to deal with them will affect the outcome of the game.
We have had lots of fun with this one! Feel free to use the model and modify away...if you do, let me know how it goes for you. I would love to hear how you are using it in your class.
