Discussion question: Ask children to discuss how they felt about working as a team last week. Encourage them to talk about how they felt when they solved a problem as a team.
Active learning: Children will play a warmup game of Stuck in the Mud. Give 2 children bibs (these will be taggers). After each game increase the number of taggers to make it more challenging. Encourage the children to unstick their fellow teammates, showing respect and team spirit.
Who in the group demonstrated the ability to support their teammates?
Using a selection of team challenge cards (different to the previous week).
Split the children into groups of 4 or 5 and provide each team with a resource card. Ask the children to solve the problem presented to them, within the time frame set by the teacher. Rotate the children clockwise so they get chance to experience all stations over the course of the lesson. Ensure children have opportunities for self-reflection during the class.
