Thanks for this wonderful lesson. I am an English teacher in South Korea. I wanna do something thought provoking lessons like this using English as a tool. I think I can connect this lesson to Karl Marx and a Korean Scholar Dasan. Thank you again..

Nicely done! I added a quick request of them to connect their concerns and solutions to the ideas of Hobbes, Locke, or Rousseau (after we'd done a minilesson or two on each). Thanks for sharing!

I thought that this was a great activity. My kids enjoyed it because it allowed them to think outside the box. Highly recommended
