KEEP IT - The Eco Game
by Hezbone Okoth Owino
The Game Board and Wheel
"KEEP IT" is a board game that can be used for educating students and children on environmental conservation. In fact, this interactive game was invented with the intention to teach children about sustainable living.
The game exposes players to environmental issues, through interactive activities or questions that fall into 3 main categories -- nature, environment and resources.
To start the game, players are divided into teams. 4 teams of 2 to 5 members each could play at the same time. (This means your whole family can be involved!).
Players are required to spin a wheel and move their markers according to the number of steps shown on the wheel. Whichever area they land their markers on, they are required to pick an activity or question card in the corresponding category.
Each time a member in a team performs a required activity or answers a question correctly, he or she earns a point for the team in the respective category.
The aim of the game is to be the first team to accumulate at least 3 points in each of 3 categories (i.e. Nature, Environment and Resources).
The Game can be purchased in Kenya at The Wildlife Club of Kenya Kisumu, which office is 5km from Kisumu town.
