What better way to explore the connection between your students and the day to day lives of people in other cultures and time periods than the games we play! This presentation will introduce you to a number of popular games played in various cultures as well as games played throughout history. Some games are relatively well know, such as Mancala, while others are less well known, such as Pok-a-Tok the Meso-American ballgame; but each game is tailored to classroom use and student exploration. These games are a great, low-tech, way to connect your students to their global world as well as the past. Come to this session ready to play some games!
