Moral learning through this game focuses on the behavior of honesty, trustworthy, loving God’s creation, caring, responsibility, and citizenship. Equipped with cards containing questions to introduce the concept of morality, it allows for teachers to enrich the moral concepts by developing questions appropriate for the stages of child development.
