Section III - Games and activities

"When people laugh they remember," says Khun Mechai Viravaidya. Khun Mechai, Chairman of Population and Community Development Association (PDA), is known for helping people remember the messages of AIDS prevention by using a lighthearted, humorous approach to teaching a serious subject.

Try a similar approach yourself and you will find few people sleeping in your sessions. Alternate presentations with games and interaction. Give your students a chance to teach each other through peer teaching, role play and plenty of question and answer time.

Caution: Be sure the fun doesn't completely hide the message. Before playing a game tell the audience what message the game demonstrates. After the game, ask. participants what they learned.

Most of the activities in this manual indicate a target audience. If your audience differs, think of ways you can modify the activity to fit the audience.

Activities included here were created or modified by AIDS Peace Corps Volunteers unless otherwise noted.

Good luck and have fun.
