Traditional Children's Games in Penang


Commissioned by UNESCO, Arts-ED joined a regional team of researchers documenting traditional children’s games in Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. Arts-ED developed an activity guide for the integration of games into subject teaching. The game-based curriculum spells out how games can benefit the teaching of concepts and skills relevant to each subject area. Teachers may incorporate ideas from the game-based curriculum into formal classroom teaching or use it in co-curricular activities. 

Children’s games CD available for reference at Arts-ED’s office. It features interactive cartoon animation accompanied by three short documentary films of children's games in Thailand.
