    I've not taught superpowers but why not do a role play with different groups being given different countries etc?
    Good luck!
  2. Great idea, thanks!
  3. Try "The Trading Game", I think the original came from Oxfam. If you haven't heard of it, it is basically a game where in groups they make paper shapes to 'sell' but the different groups have different resources depending on which country they represent so the super powers have loads of equipment but the developing countries have loads of paper (you use scrap paper of course).

    I simplify it for lower ability groups by keping the shapes simple and having templates to show them.

    Great towards the end of term.[​IMG]
