Discussion question: Ask the children what “Teamwork” means to them?
Talk to the children about what roles and responsibilities are needed in order to shape a successful team and how they plan to apply these in today’s lesson.
Can they provide any examples of teams who are successful and the reasons why?
Active learning: Children will play a warmup game of Stuck in the Mud. Give 2 children bibs (these will be the taggers). After each game increase the number of taggers to make the activity more difficult. Encourage children to show cooperation and respect by releasing their teammates if they are stuck.
Ensure all children show respect to their teammates and the other teams alike. The atmosphere for children to perform in a competitive environment is key, encourage children to cheer for their team.
