Raising Global Citizens
One game in the “Playbook” is Mali in Motion, although I kept it non-country specific, instead said “country in need”
- Divide students into two groups one group being Canada and the second the “country in need”.
- Place a bucket of rice at the other side of the gym.
- Place an empty bucket in front of each group.
- On the word “go” students must carefully transport rice (medicine) from the factory (full bucket) to the local clinic (empty bucket) using large pill bottles.
I stop the group several times with only bad things happening to the country in need (i.e. a stormwiped your roads so no more scooters) and end with telling the girls from the country in need that they no longer can help and instead have to sit out.
My hope is that someone from Canada lends a hand or objects to what they are seeing, and then we come together as a group and share thoughts and feeling on the game.
