Extend your Co-opoly experience and teach players more about co-ops! We have developed these educational resources to be implemented alongside Co-opoly, for use wherever learning happens (in schools, at home, during a meeting, etc.). Each kit comes with enough materials for all your students and includes:
- The Official Co-opoly Education Kit: A digital resource including questions, suggestions for class projects, and workshops
- A digital copy of our What is a Co-op? booklet, which you can print our as many copies of as you need
- A "Design Your Own Version of Co-opoly"
Workshops: The Official Co-opoly Education Kit includes 3 educational workshops to guide you through gameplay and make your conversations deeper and more democratic. These are designed for different audiences, including a general, all-ages audience, as well as one specifically tailored to youth. The third workshop teaches the value of co-ops to a community. Also included are questions to prompt players to reflect on gameplay and everyday democracy, as well as suggestions for projects that the group can pursue together.
Design Your Own Version of Co-opoly: Want to make a version of Co-opoly that is all about you and your community? With this kit and a copy of the game, now you can! Create your own version of Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives so that it can take place in whatever setting you prefer, facing whatever kinds of situations you'd like, with the help of our user-friendly guide. You will be able to create game components that are relevant to you, and all of the elements of Co-opoly can represent you from the beginning to the end of the game.
You will receive: 1) A PDF of customizable cards to build your own version of Co-opoly, and 2) An easy-to-use worksheet that will help you fill out every card. These can be used by individuals or in group settings—like co-op meetings or classrooms. (Please note that you will need a copy of Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives to make use of this kit.) This is a perfect tool to use in classrooms, co-op development programs, co-ops new and old, and community groups that want to explore the cooperative movement. You can make as many copies of your customized version as you want, but your custom version can not be sold.
This kit is entirely digital and will be delivered to you via e-mail.
