This activity is also with “Board Game”, children will be divided into two teams Team A and Team B. Each team determines the leader as the first person and determines the color of the pion and card pack chosen. Each team member’s task is picking up cards at random, and then answering each question, if the answer is correct then the team can put one pion in the game area. The team that can first position three consecutive pions both vertically, horizontally, and obliquely will be the winner.

For children who get the highest score of three children, they will be chosen to be “Apoteker Cilik”.
