Peace Games is an organization specializing in promoting service learning and community building activities. Peace Games offers a variety of educational services for schools interested in service learning work. One aspect of Peace Games that teachers in K-8 classrooms can use just by visiting the website is the cooperative games section. There are five categories of games from which to choose. The categories of games are; getting to know you, fun group, community and team building, running and tag, and theater games.

Applications for Education
The Peace Games activities could be useful at the start of school for helping students get comfortable in their new classroom environments. The running and tag games could be great recess activities.
