Kindergarten through fifth-grade at Darien Elementary and Wileman Elementary tried out new activities during physical education class this week.

These students participated in a cooperative games unit where they learned about and practiced cooperation skills needed when working as a team. They also practiced solving problems.

In the photo gallery above, some of the various activities:

  • Fifth graders did an activity called “knots.” While holding onto scarves, they needed to get themselves untangled.
  • Fourt graders worked in groups of five or six and tried to stay connected with each other while touching both ends of the gym.
  • Third graders tried to flip their “magic carpet” over without anyone in the team falling off.
  • Second graders worked in small groups to make shapes with a rope.
