Can 4th Graders Teach World Peace?

"A lot of people do wonder, can fourth-graders, can elementary school children handle complex problem solving? And we might think not because they just simply haven't been here long enough. But my approach is the opposite, actually. I believe, having experienced their wisdom, their insight and their kindness, that they seem to be able to do so much more than we give them credit for or even imagine they can".

We talked in a previous post about John Hunter and the World Peace game, a hands-on political simulation where the students' goal is to solve geo-political problems with the least amount of military intervention. Please listen to this amazing man or watch his TED talk.
