Year 4 - Fair Go Mate!

Our topic for this term is Fair Go Mate, where we will look to understand why people have different needs and wants along with their rights and responsibilities. To immerse the students in the unit we started the week by playing a variety of board games that all had the game rules removed. The students were required to collaborate and negotiate a new set of rules that could be applied to the game. The purpose of this activity was to demonstrate how rules provide us with guidance and structure and the board games were an analogy for how our society runs smoothly with rules and laws for all to follow. After some initial confusion, the groups demonstrated a great ability to make links, adapting new rules which enabled them to play a modified version of their game.
