Breaking the Cycle of Hunger Game

This game is designed to give students a broad overview of the challenges faced by small-scale (subsistence) farmers in the developing world. As they move around the game board, students will discover how different factors, such as economics and climate, affect small-scale farmers. They will also learn about some of the solutions to these problems.

This activity can be played with a small game board or with a larger game board which can be spread out in a larger space, like the floor or walls of a classroom. Both versions should be printed in landscape orientation.
