Making a game Chinuchi (educational)
@ Use key words: By repeatedly using key words, the chanichim will remember the name, place, or idea which you are dealing with (i.e. "I'm going on ALIYAH and I'm taking __________ “).
@Experiential games: In thus type of game the chanichim act out the Nosah. The goal is for the chanich to 'experience’ and feel part of the topic and thereby come to have a better understanding and appreciation of the idea (i.e. Get to Israel and avoid the
British tag game).
@ Informative games: These are games that require the chanichim to use or learn specific facts about the Noseh (i.e. Chidonim, twenty questions etc.).
