Bombs and Bandages Triage Exercise
Triage: This activity involved separating the pupils into groups and having them ‘triage’ the patients on the basis of their injuries. This allowed the pupils to ‘become the doctors/medics’ and also make decisions based on the information they had within the context of a battlefield. This was a successful exercise for logical reasoning and historical awareness.
