MULTI-CULTURAL GAMES

We all come from different countries and backgrounds. Attending an international school, we want to celebrate our differences and uniqueness. You will share/teach a game from your culture. This can be a physical activity/game or dance; but it may not be a sport since a sport takes a long time to teach. You will only have a total of 15 minutes. Two games will be played at the same time and the class will be divided in half. The groups will swap halfway through to play both games. You can work in a group if from the same country or teach the game yourself.
You must hand in a paper copy of your game with the following info.:

  • Name of teacher(s)
  • Equipment needed:
  • Name of game
  • Country Originated
  • Introduction and history of the game:
  • Rules:
  • Diagram the set up or attach a picture.
