teacher notes and will have them available in October with the launch of our classroom packs.   

Clash of the Countries develop a student’s understanding of number and increase mathematical literacy with real world examples It is the perfect game to start conversations around global sustainability.  As the students, play the game they will be interacting with information from a variety of countries that will inspire many in depth and interesting conversations over a wide year level range.

Clash of the Countries provides a competitive social alternative to screen based activities.  It encourages face-to-face interaction in an engaging way. 

The rules of the game are simple and it is very easy to set up.  Students can play the game with minimal teacher interaction or involvement. 

The cards offer endless open-ended extension opportunities for students.

We have been developing some notes to help you use our game in your classroom.  The first set are for any teacher who wants ideas to meet the curriculum priority of sustainability.
