Teamwork is important, whether you’re playing on a basketball team or doing a group project in class. There are skills you can use—and practice—when you have to cooperate and work together with others.
PE is a great class to practice these skills. Listening, communicating, being positive, and respecting others is key. We spend a few weeks on cooperative games, where the objective isn’t to beat someone else, but for everyone to succeed. From preschoolers passing a ball from one to the next, or Older Kids building hula-hoop structures, we’re better together.
