The 3/4 group made 'The Bio-security Game' for fun and to show our understanding of biosecurity with sheep in Australia. We decided to make a board game that we could all play. It was interesting making up the information squares and finding lots of different sheep pictures to decorate it. We had so much fun playing it and hope we can make some more. It was awesome and we laughed the whole time when we were playing it! It was the best fun ever!
The Biosecurity Song
(To the tune of 'The Bare Necessities')
Words by Mrs Judy McFadyen
Look for the biosecurity, the simple biosecuirty.
Don't forget about your farmers and your sheep.
We mean the biosecurity, old Mother Nature's purity,
That bring good biosecurity for keeps.
Wherever we wander, wherever we roam,
We couldn't be fonder of our big home.
The sheep are grazing under the tree,
To grow some wool for you and me.
When you look under the rocks and plants,
And take a look at the cans and can'ts.
Then maybe try a few.
The biosecurity of life will come to you,
They'll come to you!
Look for the biosecurity, the simple biosecurity,
Don't forget about your farmers and your wool.
We mean the biosecurity please.
That's why our farmer can rest at ease,
With good biosecurity, we're cool.
Look after our Wool Industry!!!!
Bio-security means keeping living things safe, alive and healthy.
We played some fun games about Bio-security. Here are some of our favourites:
Materials: Large space, 5 or more people, 10 markers
Rules: When a person is tapped they have to pull up their sleeves.
How to Play: One person is infected and they try to tap the others. When you are tapped you are also infected. When a person is tapped that have to pull up their sleeves The game is finished when all the people are infected.
Materials: large space, 5 or more people, 10 markers
Rules:You must not stay in place after you're infected, you must tip others.
How to play: One person is a vet and another is infected. The infected sheep must try to tap all the others while the vet must un-infect the infected sheep by tapping them.
Rules:You can not scream or yell.
How to play: Everyone closes there eyes and the adult taps on kid on the head and once this has been done they are infected, they go around squeezing others hands. Once your hand has been squeezed, you are also infected.
Why we did it?
We played the bio-security games to teach the students how diseases spread and the importance biosecurity is.
Biosecurity is a series of measures to protect against the entry and spread of pests and diseases. It includes both protection of Australia's borders at ports and airports, and our practices and habits on properties to reduce the risk of disease or infestation.
Diseases are bad things that invade you and your farms so PLEASE USE BIOSECURITY!!!!! Bio means living things and Security means protecting things. Please check your stock.
