PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Popularly referred to as "fantasy football for social studies and literacy standards," Fantasy Geopolitics is a free, exciting, and easy-to-use new learning game for teachers to use with their classes. Developed by Minnesota social studies teacher and Fantasy Geopolitics co-founder, Eric Nelson, who was looking for a new way to engage his students in current events and the study of cultures around the globe, Fantasy Geopolitics engages students in geopolitics - the study of the relationship among politics and geography, human populations, and economics, especially with respect to the foreign policy of a nation - in a new and different way, by turning the study of this topic into a fantasy football-style experience. Students draft teams of countries, follow those countries in the news, and get points every time their countries are mentioned in The New York Times.

The following activity packet includes:
• Overview of How to Set Up Your Simulation
• Introductory Handout / Draft Day Rules & Expectations
• Fantasy Geopolitics Draft Day Prep Sheet
• Fantasy Geopolitics Team Profile / Logo Activity
• Weekly Reporting Sheet
• Fantasy Geopolitics Post-Season Bracket Challenge
