Team Building Activities for Young Students
Rogers, Kelly
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v17 n4 p17-19 Mar-Apr 2004
Team building activities are an excellent way to challenge students and teach them the critical communication and problem solving skills that encourage trust, empathy, and ability to work together. They create an atmosphere that enhances the ability to meet fitness and skill goals because students, regardless of skill level, will possess increased self-confidence. Increased self-confidence leads to greater student participation in class and motivates students to challenge themselves in other areas of their lives. Some basic principles that should be introduced to students before they participate in team building are discussed in this article. These are: (1) facilitation; (2) full value contract; (3) sequencing; (4) debriefing, (5) creativity; and (6) equipment selection. (Contains 1 table and 4 resources.)
