Teams of students work together to research, prepare fact sheets, draw timelines, write short reports, and present information about 16 western Pacific Rim countries as they simulate a "race" from Japan to New Zealand.
A 63-page teacher’s guide with reproducible pages includes background notes, student activity sheets, game materials, and tests. Student guides provide each pupil with complete instructions and a “game board” (a map of the Pacific Rim). The full simulation runs for 20 class periods, but may be shortened if tight on time.
