Don’t Drop the Ball!

As another way to help students understand how to learn from their mistakes and make Positive Changes, you can have them play the following game:

  1. As a team, students have to try to get a ball from one end of the classroom to the other.
  2. The ball cannot touch the floor or any player’s arms or hands.
  3. If they break one of those rules they have to start over.
  4. At the end discuss mistakes that were made and Positive Changes that were needed to fix those mistakes to reach the goal.
