LI: To create a new sports challenge/game for the class to play using our prior knowledge of sports.
Over the past week, LS2 has been working collaboratively in groups to create a unique and competitive sport challenge. We did multiple challenges that lead up to the making of our official game, which includes making the mascot, a chant and a costume.
Some things we had to include in our game was safety rules, a scoring system, a list of the equipment we need, a map out of the playing area and we had to make sure to bulletpoint information so it is easy to read.
Our group’s game is called King’s Court and it is a tournament-style dodgeball game. To play, there are 5 groups of 7. Team 1 and Team 2 will verse first. Then Team 3 and 4 will verse while Team 5 rests. Next, teams 3 and 4 will rest while the winner between Team 1 and 2 will verse Team 5. This will continue until the end of the game. At the end, the losing teams will merge and the winning teams will merge. These teams will finally verse.
This activity and task helps us to become familair with using our prior knowledge and apply our thinking to our learning, as well as working collaboratively with a large group of people.
