What educators are saying

My students are really enjoying the different activities. I like to use them during morning meetings as well as whenever we have a few minutes to spare.
So many great ideas for socially distant team building games. It's so hard to find activities that allow students to have fun but also stay safe, and these fit the bill!

Why use 20 Team Building Socially Distant Games and Activities to Build Classroom Community? One of the most important skills for children to learn is getting along and respecting their own community. With this in mind, I've written up some old favorite games, some that I've made up, and some that friends have shared with me.

How it works: This set of 20 games will keep your students busy, happy, and working together. for months! Each game lists materials needed, group size, age level, purpose, and specific instructions. Most games only take a few minutes, so it’s easy to weave them into classroom time. Some games can even be woven into the curriculum! Many teachers like to laminate their favorite games, and put them on a ring for easy reference.

What’s included: This resource has 20 different games, listed with materials, age groups, purposes, and instructions. Each game is listed in color as well as black and white for easier printing. The resource also includes a self-assessment, which can be used on occasion to have children think about how they are doing their job with teamwork.
