A Game of Social Class
Down But Not Out: A Game of Social Class

A board game highlighting (rather stereotypical - please do not be offended!) class differences within British society in the second half of the 20th century. I devised this to teach the context of Willy Russell's Blood Brothers but it would also work for History, Humanities, Politics, etc as well as the teaching of any text where social class is a theme.

It is one of the best activities I've ever created and my students love it year after year! I hope you enjoy it too!
