Disaster strikes simulation game

Age: 7-11 but can easily be adapted for older age groups.

The Typhoon Town Challenge game gives an insight into what life is like for a community located in a particularly poor part of Metro Manila, the capital region of the Philippines.

In this game, pupils work together in teams to plan and build their perfect town. But they’ll have to make some tough budgeting choices along the way.

What will they do when disaster strikes? How will they cope? And have they got what it takes to work as a team to rebuild?
