Educational Simulations offers Real Lives, the life simulation that gives you the opportunity to learn how people really live in other countries.
Real Lives is an interactive life simulation software program that enables you and your students to live one of billions of lives in any country in the world. Rich or poor, happy or sad, Real Lives provides the circumstances and you make the decisions.
Real Lives begins with the birth of a child somewhere in the world. As your character grows, you will live this person's life, making decisions and living with the consequences of your decisions. Experience life as a:
- Peasant farmer in Bangladesh
- Factory worker in Brazil
- Policeman in Nigeria
- Lawyer in the United States
- Computer operator in Poland
- or any of thousands more ...
Through statistically accurate events, Real Lives brings to life different cultures, political systems, economic opportunities, personal decisions, health issues, family issues, schooling, jobs, religions, geography, war, peace, and more. As your students make decisions for their characters and experience the consequences of those decisions they will learn about the world and gain an increased appreciation of their own culture and the cultures of other peoples. The interactive software, carefully chosen Internet links, suggested classroom activities, and projects make Real Lives an exciting part of your secondary social sciences curriculum.
