Lesson 2: Objective: TO give students a sense of being refugee Materials needed : Internet Access, laptop Time: one class period

Directions: 1. Go to http://www.playagainstallodds.com and participate this online simulation to give you a sense of the experience of becoming a refugee. Play the following chapters in this order: 2. Now consider your fate as a refugee from Darfur. You have fled across the border into a neighboring country and have found yourself in a refugee camp. But now you are alone. You don’t speak the language of the people in charge of the refugee camp and you don’t know anyone from your country in the camp. You can barely communicate with a translator. You have no money, nor job, nor any way to live on your own. Write about about this experience. This could be in a letter to a friend or family member or diary entry. Print it and glue it in your notebook. (visit this site for an idea of what life is like in a Chad refugee camp http://www.unicef.org/sowc/20297_30568.html) Include the following in your writing: 1.State how you feel on arrival at the refugee camp. What are your fears and hopes? 2.Describe life in a refugee camp . -Where would you sleep? -What would you eat and where would you get it?


-What would you do for fuel and water? -What is there “fun” to do? -Would school be a part of your life? 3.What do you think you can do to survive in the refugee camp and beyond? 4.What do you want over the next 5 to 10 days, or sometimes years, until you can either return to their country? Homework: 1.Complete your letter 2. Look at lesson 3. Research it and printe out relevant text and pictures to use on your poster tomorrow.

Lesson 3: Objective: Students will illustrate life in a refugee camp as a way of addressing the needs of refugees. Materials needed : Print outs from the previous day’s homework Time: one class period Directions: Imagine you are in charge of a refugee camp with about 10,000 people. Use the following as minimum requirements to determine the resources and personnel needed to provide for the refugees. http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/refugeecamp/refugees/refugee.html http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/refugeecamp/ Outline how goods will be transported to your camp 90 kilometres from the nearest town accessed on a dirt road through hostile territory. Create a poster to show the problems faced by displaced Burmese people and three actions Australia can take to make a difference. Discuss in small groups taking on the role of a non-governmental organization (NGO) • • • • •

Where to locate the refugee camp? How to distribute resources if there is a shortage? How to cope with sudden influx or departure of people? How to make sure those most vulnerable (women and children) are safe? How to help people take control of their own lives as much as possible so they do not become dependent (eg grow own food, earn an income, continue education)
