The following cooperative games are excerpts from a professional development workshop alongside elementary physical education teachers. These cooperative challenges can help establish and strengthen relationships within a physical education program. The underpinning of the workshop revolved around the affective domain, specifically the relationship goal of the Saskatchewan PE curriculum.
If we want to work on enhancing the physical skills… we need to first slow down… We cannot be pre-occupied with the teaching of movement without thinking about the affective domain, about the lives of the participants. Until a relationship is formed, we truly wonder if was can teach the physical (Lewis, Lessard, Schaefer, 2013). We wonder how moving together can look, sound, and feel different.
