Explanation of Games and Activities
Build higher-order-thinking skills through exercises that challenge participants to score goals in collaboration with peers in opposition to problems such as time, distance, fear, ignorance, or other impersonal opponents. The activities become tools for building skills in analyzing what works and what needs to be improved.
EnTeam structures are designed to work in a sequence: First as a physical activity that builds a thinking skill and then 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 work or study together.
Most of the equipment for the physical exercises can be assembled from materials commonly available. Instructions for making the kits are available from EnTeam Organization.
