Social Skills - Group Activities
Mostly activities to help children practice good social skills while working in small teams or groups.
Good Sport, Schmood Sport! This video is geared toward Good Sportsmanship in Elementary School for Field Day. I downloaded three fabulous pre-existing videos and added commentary. We watched it at a whole school meeting. Happily, the kids enjoyed it! (JL)
THREE NO-TALKING GAMES~ The second one, Silent Conversations, could easily be adapted for a fun classroom ELA game.
Ship's Captain - great game for large group. This is by far my students' favorite from 1st-8th grade.
Air Lock teambuilding game. This would be a great game to play with kids to practice leadership skills. You could have the students take turns being the one in charge and giving the group directions. Leadership is another vital social 21st century skill. I would use this in any subject classroom.
Summer Activities for Kids Series: Indoor Activities
Best summer camp game ever: Golf Ball | Appel Farm Arts Camp
These are all extremely fun and fast-moving tagging games. Students will get their heart rates up and not even know they are getting a great workout because they will be having so much fun.
