One way to interest students about a culture and to help them understand it is to introduce them to the culture through one of its games. Games and sports are central to human cultures all around the world and they reflect various cultural preferences. This unique ready-reference collection describes and provides the rules for over 300 diverse games and sports from many different countries worldwide. Students and teachers can use this resource to discover the place of games in various cultures and to try playing the games from the cultures they are studying. Emphasis is placed on rare and original games and sports, providing a unique perspective on countries from every continent. Each entry provides information on who typically plays the game in that culture, what the object of the game is, what the symbolism behind the game is, the equipment needed to play the game, and the rules for playing it. Those games that are appropriate for classroom replication are noted. Students will use this volume to enlighten their understanding of cultural diversity while having fun and educators will find new games to add to their lesson plans to keep their students' interest levels high.
