Poverty Simulation Activity

The goal is to make it to the end of the month living on about a dollar a day. Play the game as "realistically' as possible. Make decisions in the game as close to what you would do in "real life" if you were forced to make similar decisions.

After completing the simulation, answer the following questions:

1. Did you choose to live in a village or city slum?

2. What was your job(s)?

3. Did you have children? If so, how many?

4. Did your children attend school or did they work?

5. Were you able to feed your children every day?

6. Were you or your children ever sick? If so, how did you deal with you or your child's illness?

7. What was the most difficult decision you had to make in the "game"?

8. How would you play the game differently if you were to play it again?

9. Did you make it to the end of the month, or did you run out of money?

10. If you had any money left, how much did you have?
