As AnnMaria mentioned in her last blog post, she brought up during the developers’ meeting last week that March 31st is Cesar Chavez Day and that we should have our games free for another month in his honor. Well, I have an update on that today. However, first I want to share more information on Cesar Chavez, who he was and what he fought for, who inspired him, and great resources for educators to teach about his legacy.
Cesar Chavez was a Mexican American labor activist who founded and lead the United Farm Workers. He fought for justice and better working conditions for migrant farm workers. He was inspired to fight for justice by heroes like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. To this day, Cesar Chavez is remembered for fighting for America’s working class – those laborers that help put food on our tables. His legacy lives on and his efforts continued through lawmakers that strive to protect workers’ rights.
Educators, when teaching about Cesar Chavez’s legacy you can find many resources on his story through sites like Teachers Pay Teachers and the Library of Congress. History is very important. It’s important to learn about and acknowledge our history in order to navigate the present and move towards the future. That’s why at 7 Generation Games, our games not only teach math, which is also very important, but teach math in context with history and culture as the narrative.
Speaking of our games, back to the update I mentioned earlier. In honor of Cesar Chavez Day, you can get our games for free for another month! You can get various of our English and Spanish bilingual games free for your device. I’ll list those below. Also, educators, feel free to check out any of our English and Spanish bilingual lesson plans from our Growing Math site.
