Author: Practical Action
Grade(s): 6
Season: Any
Lesson Length: Flexible, (at least 10minutes for the String Activity)
Topics: Sustainable Development (Climate, Citizenship, Economics, Ecosystems, Energy, Agriculture, Health, Human Rights, Water, Land Use)

Description: This easy to implement activity provides an effective demonstration of the interconnectedness that characterizes the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.  Students representing individual ‘goals’ arrange themselves randomly in a circle and look to connect to other students with goals related to their own  by passing a ball of string.  After passing the string, the student must articulate what the connection is.  The result is a visual web and a tactile representation of integration of all 17 Global Goals.  Links to icons for each goal are included in the lesson.
