Bring Water To LIfe

by Camilla Olsen, Denmark

Description of the game

  • The players need to get the glass of water to the dessert before everything dries out and plants, animals and people are dying.
  • The obstacles can symbolise bad roads, making it difficult to get the water out to the people or plants. Or it can be climate action you talk about.

Impact Games for Goal 6 & Goal 13, Hellerup School, Denmark.

  • Have the kids in groups of 3-4 – together.
  • They need to get through an obstacle race mad of all you have. If you are inside a gymnasium use the equipment, robes things they can walk around, jump over crawl under.
  • If you are outside around trees etc. give each player a glas of water filled up the same.
  • Now have them get through the obstacle race with out loosing any water. Make the obstacles a little complicated. 
  • After their first race, see how much water they have.
  • VARIATION & RACE 2

  • Let them come up with suggestions on how they can create the obstacle race differently so they can get through the race faster and with more water. You can make the roads more levelled, carry the water differently. Just let them try different ideas.
  • Have them time them self. If the first race took 2 minutes, see if you can shorten the time.
  • ADVANCE 

    Add both water and a ball, that they can drible, or carry.   

    ORGANISATION

  • Area: Any size that you have can work.
  • Materials: Balls, obstacles, watch/timer, eater and glasses. 

Create GAME SITUATION

There are so many great ways to create a game. Allow the players to be quite creative with this by introducing the goal at the beginning of the match and asking them how this could be included:  Do one team have a big goal and the other a small. Do everybody play with a glas of water or change a rule every minute. 

A simple way to bring in the Global Goals when playing a match, is that every time a team scores or make a save, or during a water break they can double their points or get a point by stating a Global Goal and what they could do to help promote this in their community. Easiest to play small side games with 3-6 players, so they can hear each other.

You can always have several games going at the same time. There are some rule ideas under Goal 17.

WRAP UP & SHARE

PUT YOUR TRAINING IMPACT ON THE MAP

  • What are the consequences of pollution?
  • How do you feel pollution in your everyday?
