A step-by-step guide to play the game

1

Ask a player to pick one situation in a red circle. The players shares with the group what he/she sees on the picture. Ask additional questions like:

  • Have you ever been in such a situation?
  • Do you know any friends who have been in this specific situation?

Then, ask the player which person or caregiver they would turn to if they would need help in this specific situation. The player picks one or multiple persons or caregivers (in the yellow circles) and explains why he/she would turn to this person. Also ask the player how confident he/she is that this person would offer help in the situation.

  • Reflect with the kids how confident they are they will get support from the different characters. Do they have a lot of confidence in the police? Or in their teacher?

Specific learning objectives

  • Reflect on the different actors who can offer help in different situations
