In this game a table is covered in small object. The players are divided into two small teams (2-3 per team is ideal). Each round a clue is read and the first team to pick up the appropriate item wins a point.
For example: Cover a table in the contents of a first aid kit. To make the game harder you can also add other items that don’t belong in a first aid kit. Ask questions like,
This item is used to tie a sling (Triangular bandage)
This item is used to protect your hands while helping others (latex gloves)
The last two meetings we’ve been working on the First Aid Badge along with the first aid sections of Learn About Safety.
The first week we had a guest speaker come to the meeting. We alternated teaching time with the girls breaking into groups and trying things out. The speaker covered all the basics of emergency scene management. She talked to the girls about the recovery position, getting help in a timely way and choking.
The second week we held a round robin of first aid skills.
- The girls learned about rescue breathing
- A station about cuts, scrapes and wounds and played a flip puzzle about types of band-aids
- A station about burns, sunburns, hypothermia and frostbit where they played a variation on Becky’s (Dragon’s) red light, green light first aid game.
- At the final station they made mini-first aid kits, like the ones made in film-canisters, only we used pill bottles donated by local pharmacies.
