a Game - Outcome A (10-30)-11
Organize the students into groups and give them
class time to invent, change, or add to a game they have been playing.
Encourage the students to consider what would
make the game more fun, challenging or fair. Some examples are changes
to the ball type, the boundaries, the goals, or the ways that points
are scored. Ask the students to think about how these changes would
make the game better.
