Izabela Kopik psychologist IIAIM: my own coutryTIME: 30 - 60 minutesPLACE: Big classroomNO OF PARTICIPANTS:THINGS NEEDED: crayons, big sheets of paper (as many as we have groups), markersWORK SCHEME:Introduction Greeting, introduction to the workshops.Main part We ask for volunteers that will be in charge of leading the activity (the number of volunteers depends on the size of the group- 1 person per 10 participants, but not less than 2).We explain the rules of the task to the volunteers, the others have a short break at that time. Every volunteer has to create his/her new state. He/she has to invent the main idea the state will be based on. The task of the volunteers is to present the idea of the state and canvass citizens from among the group. Every leader shows the idea of the country through pantomime and then the participating students choose the country they wish to belong to. The students move to the next step of the activity in the created groups: - Every state has to create its constitution- at least 10 rules (every inhabitant should sign the constitution) - The citizens of each state have to show how does the life in their country look like (e.g. one day).Ending Leaders are presenting their constitution
