Once the drawings are completed, display them and invite the children to view the mini-exhibition.

Extra game information

Reflection Questions
  • Was it easy to come up with the two different environments?
  • Which drawing and environment do you prefer the most? Why?
  • How do the people living in the environments you've drawn feel?
  • What makes an environment positive or negative?
  • How does our physical environment impact us?
  • How do we influence the environment?
  • What would you like to change about your physical environment?
  • How can you make your environment more like the one you drew?

Tips for the Facilitator
  • Assist children in understanding that the environment is shaped by both tangible physical factors and intangible abstract ones, and that both are necessary for a good environment. Younger children may struggle with the abstract concept of environment.
  • Prior to conducting the exercise, make sure you have a clear focus on the aspects of environment you want to emphasize (such as housing, school, etc.). Attempting to address the entire environment without a clear focus will be too vast and abstract.
