The children at the After School Program have been working on Team building and problem solving skills. We are always looking at new ways to improve not just our sportsmanship but also keep our minds thinking. In this activity the children were playing a game called shipwreck! The children were put in teams of two and given one gym mat. They had to work together and think about how they can get their team and the mat to the other side of the gym without touching the ground.
It was awesome to see the many different strategies the children came up with together.
You can also make it more challenging by providing obstacles to put in their way. As you can see I used the benches as an obstacle that they had to get around. Everyone had a great time!
