Description: Students will work on having good TEAMWORK in this drill by working with a partner and be the fastest in the class to pass the ring over their body 3 times in a row.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – The team that gets the ring to go around their group three times without letting go of hands wins. The students, on the second round, can see if they can beat their previous time.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The student must be able to pass the ring over to their other arm without letting go of the group’s hands. This means they will have to figure out a way to get the ring over as quickly as possible, which works on their ability to make correct choices quickly and complete a task accurately.
