Sports & Games Lesson Plan

How does the laser “tag” the player, why is the bowling lane so slick, how does the zip line propel riders? Talk with the staff at the venues about how these games and activities function.

Discuss with your group the importance of team building and game playing. Describe how each team member contributes to the activity, as well as the rules and procedures of the games. Observe how your teammates react and interact. Remember to stay positive – everyone is different and brings a unique advantage to the team. Compare several activities you completed today. Which were hardest and why? Which were most fun? Which required the most teamwork?
