What makes you jump for joy, or laugh out loud? These 15 short films were filmed in some of the countries Oxfam works in, and they celebrate fun and games. Suitable for ages 5 to 9, they provide a snapshot into other children’s lives and help us all think about our human connections.

Full background information is provided on each film. There are also accompanying teachers’ notes which provide a range of ideas for how you can use these films as a springboard for discussion, encouraging learners to identify similarities and respect diversity. These cover the following themes:

  • Me and you
  • Look what I can do!
  • Who am I?
  • Where in the world?
  • Exploring big questions.
