Schools and College up and down the country are preparing for all sorts of different activities for the Comic Relief Red Nose Day this Friday (15th March). Are you doing anything with your class?
Here is a ready-made Powerpoint game to run for approximately 20 to 25 minutes in your class this Friday. Whilst being a fun, team-based challenge, the multi-choice questions are all about facts and figures related to the causes that Comic Relief are attempting to support. As such, the information contained within the game should prove a useful stimulus for discussion within your class about the causes of poverty in Africa, as well as alcohol-abuse and other social issues within the UK. It could also prove a useful tool with discussing why these problems exist and what government solutions could be implemented (as well as asking why they haven't already been put in place!).

The extra challenge for teachers is to work out a way that this could be used to collect some money for Red Nose Day. Could you have a 'Beat the Teacher' challenge where you promise to give £1 to the charity for every team that beats your own score (don't look at the answers before you start the game!) - that would be very generous of you! Could you ask for a donation off each of your students as an incentive for running a fun-filled activity on a cold Friday? Any suggestions on how to use this resource to make money for Comic Relief are very welcome.
