This is a simulation based on the premise of Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. In groups, students are given the same basic scenario as the beginning of the book and are asked to formulate a plan to save the world. This combines a group project (graded individually) with creative problem-solving and a persuasive speech. It can be easily adjusted based on time and students' needs. Download includes lesson plan, handouts, PowerPoint presentation, and scoring rubric. All items can be edited/customized.
