Discussion question: Ask what “teamwork” means to them? What skills do they need to work within a team?
Active learning: Children will play a warmup game of “stuck in the mud”. Give 2 or 3 children a bib (these will be the taggers). When a child is tagged, they must stand still and call for help, encourage the untagged children to free them by lightly tapping their hand. Rotate the children playing as the tagger throughout the warmup and increase the number of taggers if the game is too easy. Encourage the children to work together to get each other free.
Relay Races and Obstacle Challenges.
Split the children into 5 or 6 equal teams.
Ensure all children work together as a team and show respect for each other.
