We plan on holding "mini olympics", but with Kinder friendly games (egg toss, relay races, obstacle course through the playground, tug of war, etc...). Only in this olympics, there are no individual winners, only teams can compete and win, and the games are designed so that it will take a team to win. This is a fun way to enjoy the afternoon outside, and to practice team building skills with the class. We will have friendly competition between two classrooms, but within the class, there must be teamwork to win the "gold". In the past, I have made, bronze, gold, and silver medals to present to the winning teams, and also, have an administrator come and present the medals to the winning team. With the three levels of medals, everyone wins something.
