Be! Books will be going into 1,000 government schools in Bihar very soon. And every Be! Book has a corresponding activity that children will complete and hand in each week so we can chart what they have learned. Some of the activities are fun games that children play in class to reinforce the entrepreneurial skill they have learned that week (in addition to a take-home activity).
Here’s a work-in-progress maze game that allows children to practice the skills of planning and goal setting. Kids have to move their pieces across the board, avoiding planning mistakes (like not doing your market research or failing to forecast weather conditions that affect your business) and outwitting other players who are trying to keep them from getting to their goal.
And now the fun part: we get to play!
