Rivendell Physical Education

Cooperation

Many physical skills can be difficult to learn, but teamwork skills can be just as important. Teams perform better when everyone is working towards a common goal and respecting what each member has to offer. Teamwork requires communication skills, positive attitude and respect.

We spent several weeks on cooperative team-building games. Rather than competing against others, the objective was to complete a task together (regardless of what another group might be doing).

Games ranged from the Human Knot game to Nuclear Waste Transfer to various parachute games,  the activities challenged the students to work together. That’s a vital skill for far more than just PE class!
