(*You may want to “Yes! Register my game.” when asked if you are not quick at video games so you can complete it over two days*)

  • As you play the game stop after each section of 4 activities and record 5 sentences about what you have learned about refugees.  You may even want to stop after each mini game and add some notes which you can use to synthesize your learning.
