Today in class we did a simulation about poverty. We had two teams. 1, The Havealottas and the Haveanotta. The Havealottas were the rich group and the group with all the good items.
I was in the Haveanottas. The groups were random. The purpose of this Simulation was to get the feel of poverty and how a person/family comes from poverty to becoming wealthy and has enough to live freely.
An example of a kid who was in poverty but then became famous was Cristiano Ronaldo. As a kid Ronaldo suffered from growth pain and his family was very very poor.
The simulation mirrored the cycle of poverty by how we had to make somewhat unfair deals but then if we got more money we could progress to a more healthy and better life.
