Description: Students will work on their CONTROL by not letting their emotions get the best of them by not being too silly, and not becoming super frustrated as they try to escape the bullies.
Teaching SKILLZ:
EXTRINSIC MOTIVATION – If the students fall down, or if they are unable to escape within the time limit, then they have to do five pushups. If they are able to escape in time without falling over, the instructors will do five pushups.
SPEED OF PROCESSING – The student must be able to escape a ring with multiple bullies pushing them, within a certain time limit. This works on their ability to complete a task quickly and accurately, as the students must escape the ring within a time limit with multiple people pushing with pads.
