    I did this with a group of grade 7’s, and not only did they love it, but they were able to take on others’ perspectives and think about the refugee crisis in a new light. They wanted to do it again and again!

  2. Christine Bullock

    This activity aligns perfectly with the Global Geography 12 course in Nova Scotia. It is respectful and engaging and I recommend it wholeheartedly!

  3. Nick

    This is an excellent activity to do with High School students. Very eye opening. It allows you to “walk in the shoes” of a refugee, and forces you to make difficult decisions.

  4. Cherri

    I used this resource with a group of 40 grade 7-12 students to encourage compassion for others and as an introduction to Food Studies 11/12 and Social Justice 12. The activity went really well, the students were quite engaged, and were able to make personal connections to the difficulties facing some of our immigrant populations.
