Guessing is fun – letting others guess is just as enjoyable!
This project is focused on the game of guessing. We aim to design exciting quizzes about countries with children and teenagers, featuring questions and images. Students are invited to conceptualize, create, and play quizzes about countries using the multiple-choice method. To do this, we provide them with age-appropriate information through various methods, which they can use for research and then choose quiz questions.
Children are curious and imaginative. They learn best through play and by using their own creativity. They enjoy guessing games and sharing their knowledge with others.
Who do we want to reach?
The project targets children and teenagers in both formal and informal educational settings. Our target audience is aged 10 to 17 years. We offer analog workshops in schools in Berlin – either as part of an extracurricular activity, a workshop day, or a workshop week.
What do we want?
Fundamentally, we aim to provide children the opportunity to learn something in a playful and pressure-free manner – about themselves and other cultures. For this, we use the concept of Global Learning, allowing children and teenagers to recognize global connections and establish links between their local lives and those in the Global South.
Through work on the quiz, we want to enable children and teenagers to gain comparative knowledge about Africa, for example, by examining the countries Cameroon and Germany and comparing their respective situations.
What are our main goals?
Knowledge Gain: Informing about similarities and differences in the lives of children and teenagers on different continents. Learning to deal with new media: Practicing research – discovering interesting facts, filtering essential information, assessing the truthfulness of information. Instilling joy in teaching others through mutual quiz play. Promoting the development of intercultural competence. Promoting creativity – through the substantive and artistic creation of quizzes by children and teenagers. Encouraging children and teenagers to actively participate in political processes for sustainable development. How do we plan to achieve this?
Workshops with theoretical input and research tasks within global learning are our pedagogical concept. The quiz takes center stage – children and teenagers create something concrete that they can show to others. In this context, they act as experts.
Our educational offering is an entertaining and informative addition to the school curriculum. In a playful way, we want to raise awareness that there are culturally different conditions for life in human communities – for example, in climate, history, or access to energy. Through research and quiz creation, we aim to achieve sustainable knowledge growth. This ensures joy in learning without pressure and provides unlimited space for imagination.
