Students will create and present their own modified game.
In small groups, students choose a sport / game of interest. Using the Cricket Skills(U7L4-6R1) ask students to work together to design a modified game (U7L4-6R2) that can be played in the playground during lunch time. In their small groups, ask students to discuss and work through the worksheet Planning Our Modified Game to Class (U7L4-6R3). Students should be encouraged to maintain the integrity of the game they are modifying, so it still resembles its original.
Ask students to reflect on the modifications they made to determine how well the game was received. Questions to consider:
- What were the positive aspects of your game and how it was played?
- What are some areas of improvement?
The students can complete the reflection worksheet Games and Sports Reflection (U7L4-6R4).
Challenge students to design an event which could be included at the next Youth Paralympics using the worksheet: Games For All (U7L4-6R5) provided.
The extension activity is optional and can be given to students as a homework activity or as an extension activity.
