Instructional Ideas

  • Have high schoolers research the conditions in various camps, as well as current immigration codes for their countries
Classroom Considerations

  • The 2013 resource is designed for New Zealand schools, but the concepts are appropriate for any classroom
  • New Zealand English is used throughout
  • Americans refer to sello tape as Scotch tape
  • Some may be confused by the format of the items list; in each case, individuals must choose either matches or a CD player, a football or a photo album, etc.
Pros

  • The seven-page packet includes six suggestions for activities
Cons

  • Some class members may feel the fun activities make light of the experiences of refugees and IDPs
