It is always difficult trying to get my students to understand the importance of charity events such as Red Nose Day. Getting to see beyond the fact that it’s a day off from school uniform is usually quite a mission in itself!
This year, however, I have found an excellent online game that should keep them busy and help them understand how difficult life is for families in Africa. The game is called “Cost of Life” and the aim is to keep a family alive and healthy for four years by sending some of the family out to work and some to school for an education so they can get better jobs. I played it myself (purely for testing purposes!) and only had one family member left by the end, and he was unhealthy!
Here is the link to the game, enjoy and let me know what you think: COST OF LIFE GAME
