We will be starting up our World Games unit with the grade 2/3 classes this week. This is always a very popular unit with the students. This is a stand alone unit that we created last year at ISPP, but we are definitely taking it a step further this year.
Many games played around the world have similar characteristics.
An Inquiry into:
Each week the students will learn a number of games from around the world. After being introduced to the game and playing it for a few minutes, the students will have to answer the following questions in their Sportfolio
Summative Assessment Task
The students will be required to create their own game using aspects of the different world games played in class over the previous 4 weeks. The requirements are: A) The game must be played using minimal resources and B) There must be maximum participation. They will have two classes to create the game and practice playing it in their group making necessary modifications along the way. They will then present the game to the other group (each class will be divided into two groups during the game creation part of the unit) and have them play their game.
After playing the game, the students must comment on the following:
