This version of the lesson is suited for grades 6-8.
This lesson will help students understand several of poverty's causes and manifestations, including racism, sexism, and lacking access to education, by detailing and demonstrating the challenges specific impoverished groups face.

Students take on the role of a person who is affected by poverty in a specific way. They are encouraged to dress up and act. Pointing out when students are stereotyping a group is part of the lesson. "Situation Slips," which detail students' assigned situations, are included.
Part 2 has students go into groups and build a structure, similar to the first lesson. However, new restrictions that demonstrate exclusion, resource stripping, sexism, and many other factors that lead to and deepen poverty have been added.
