Learn about World Peace and other 4th grade Achievements at Sabot!

The World Peace Game has been played by students around the world. This summer rising 4th-8th graders can play in Richmond at Sabot, and at the same time, Teachers can participate in a master class with John Hunter.

Five-Day Master Class for Teachers and World Peace Game Camp for Students

The Martin Institute Master Class with John Hunter is an unparalleled experience for teachers to come together in an environment insulated from the demanding rhythms and routines of the day in order to interrogate their own teaching practices.
Using John Hunter’s World Peace Game as an inspiring and challenging analogy, class participants are led by John Hunter and Jamie Baker of the Martin Institute through a series of reflective questions and activities that uncover the grounding assumptions of their teaching practice. This process renders new space and possibilities for different approaches in their teaching method and their learning design. Using new insights, class participants take the outcomes evident in John Hunter’s work and design toward them using their own age group students and subject area and interests.
In this 5 day Martin Institute Master Class with John Hunter, teachers will have an opportunity to observe as John Hunter plays the World Peace Game with students. Students will begin the game from scratch on Monday at 8:30 am, playing each day until noon. The game will conclude by noon on Friday. Teachers in this class will gain specific and detailed knowledge of the World Peace Game and how it is facilitated in the classroom.

Sabot at Stony Point is pleased to host the World Peace Game Camp. This camp is an opportunity for boys and girls to experience a 5-day intensive version of John Hunter’s World Peace Game.
The World Peace Game is a four-tiered structure that puts the problems of the world within reach of the students. Students are organized into country teams with Prime Ministers, Secretaries of Defense, and Cabinet staff. Other important roles in the game are the Secretary of the United Nations, President of the World Bank, Arms Dealers, Weather Goddess, and the Saboteur. This game exposes children to systems thinking, critical and creative problem-solving, leadership responsibilities, decision making, negotiation, and much more.
