Interactive games, especially for young ages, are considered to be the most effective means of education.
Safe Water Sports Organization’s educational program, approved by the Ministry of Education, “travels’’ across all elementary schools of the Greek periphery, through a specially designed suitcase.
The purpose of the Program is to inform students about the basic safety rules at beach, in the sea, in the swimming pool and in water sports.
The educational bag ("training suitcase") was designed by educators, psychologists and graphic designers for children aged 5-11 (Kindergarten and Primary School). No special knowledge or training is required for the teacher/educator to perform the activities of the educational bag.
The content of the educational bag includes:
• Informational material for the instructor
• Representation of a beach with Playmobil toys (in puzzle format)
• Illustrated card guidelines concerning safety at the beach, in the sea, in the swimming pool and in water sports
• ''Find the error'' games
• Board games
• Memory cards
• Color books
• Story cubes
• the CD of Safe Water Sports
• The book "Octopus Safe and the Three Seaguards" written by Vangelis Eliopoulos and published by PATAKIS publications
The suitcase is suitable for schools, children's camps, hotels, swimming pool centers, etc.
