Starting in 3rd grade, organizational games evolve into lead-up games for specific sports. Skills become more specialized for the chosen activities. Team challenge activities are introduced and tasks become more group oriented. All of these activities provide the framework for encouraging the student to become more of a team player with an increased awareness and sensitivity toward others.
Moving towards 6th grade, movement skills continue to be presented in group and cooperative activities. Students are encouraged to advance toward more challenging skill progressions and problem solving strategies. Student coaches, referees, and demonstrators may be used to encourage knowledge of the skill being taught and self-esteem.
