    The activity of Challenging Conditions felt very real to my Grade 6 students. Although the characters are fictional they identified with the reality of the problems. Discussion were excellent.

    I used this resource in my Grade 10 Geographic Issues of the 21st Century 20F. Rather than posters, I had the groups of students to a character introduction PowerPoint presentation so we would get to know the people. Then we went through the questions and the discussion was very rich with students asking each other questions as well.
