With “we hurry to the rescue” game we would like to initiate a discussion about the role of aid in social life. Children’s task will be to come up with ways of helping their family and people around them.
- dice template to print and cut out (attachment 4.1) or a ready-made dice (e.g. a building block)
- symbols of people and animals we can help, printed out (attachment 4.2)
Download the template from attachment, cut it out and outline it on the cardboard. Cut out the outlined shape leaving 1 cm of space on the sides marked on the template with a red dotted line (these are the parts to glue the dice together). Then, glue the shape together (it is best to use a hot glue gun but if you do not have one, you can use regular bookbinding glue). This way, you will create a solid dice. Glue the pictures from attachment 4.2 onto the dried out dice.
If you have a ready-made dice (e.g. a wooden cube of similar dimensions — 6.5 x 6.5 x 6.5 cm), you can skip the steps which include the template and immediately proceed to glue the pictures on it. Now you can start the game.
The volunteer rolls the dice first. The rolled up picture symbolises a person, whom the child can help. The question is, how? The child should think and give their own example of a good deed they can do for the drawn person. If the child can come up with an answer, the dice goes to the next volunteer, if not — the group/class helps out and suggests the answer to their friend. The game is on until all the children are engaged in it.
