2Each student is asked to describe and rate their actual self with the same criteria listed in the worksheet, then list out the differences between themselves and their virtual character. Students may sketch the appearance of their virtual character.5
3Through different challenges and scenarios, their virtual character will grow or develop according their behavior.

Their virtual character will get marks or lose marks for

a) co-operation; b) non-violent behaviour; c) thinking before acting.

The amount of marks added or subtracted should be discussed among fellow students.

Ideally in the game, there would be an "expert" to give advice and encourage appropriate behavior.
