  7. Sex & media: Who is responsible?

Variations

  • Difficulty: You can easily make the game more or less difficult depending on the knowledge and age of the players. Small children can just name the different body parts (including the penis and the vagina) and explain in their own words what those body parts do. Bigger children can learn more about the workings of our body.
  • Images: You can provide images yourself (instead of having the players draw them) of e.g. organs, the reproductive system,... to attach to the silhouette so you can discuss the way these body parts work.
  • Blind artist: Divide the players into small groups. Give each group a big piece of paper/cardboard and ask them to draw the silhouette of one of the players. Attach the drawn silhouettes to a wall. One player of each group is put in front of that group's silhouette, blindfolded. The game leader mentions a body part. All blindfolded players now try to draw that body part in the correct place on their silhouette. The other players of the group cannot give instructions. The blindfolded player that drew the body part the closest to where it's supposed to be gets 1 point. Repeat this exercise a few times, so all players can draw at least once. The team with most points at the end wins the game.
  • (Not) beautiful: Form pairs. The players will draw each other's silhouette. Now, each player takes his/her silhouette. They draw 3 green dots on the parts of their body that they are happy about. They draw 3 red dots on the parts of their body that they do not like/are unhappy about. If they are not unhappy about any body part, they don't draw any red dots. Discuss.

Specific learning objectives

  • Learn how to correctly name and draw different body parts.
  • Learn differences and similarities between a girl/woman's body and a boy/men's body.
  • Learn how the human body works.
