The Games We Play

Posts Tagged ‘access


This is a proposal for a game based on access to water, research development and individual/ team competition. The game is meant for school students in their Environment Science class . The aim of the game is to develop skills in field research and communication as well as to create awareness about the taboo topic of “toilets”. The game is divided into 2 parts. The first part involves going out into the field to collect information and developing basic comprehension of the subject matter. The second part, which involves a card game tries to help students share and assess information to create links and see the larger picture.

The following are images of the items that will be in the game kit:
