Build higher-order-thinking skills by starting with the games that challenge students to score goals in collaboration with other students in opposition to problems such as time, distance, fear, ignorance, or other impersonal opponents. The games become tools for building skills in analyzing what works and what needs to be improved.
EnTeam activities are designed to work in a sequence: First as a physical activity that builds a thinking skill and then in an academic exercise that uses the thinking skill. The two activities are connected because they use similar thinking skills. The physical game provides a metaphor that prepares students to collaborate and study together.
Most of the equipment for the physical games can be assembled from materials available commonly. And free instructions for making the kits are available from EnTeam Organization.
