The Second Cooperative Sports & Games Book
Terry Orlick's approach to sports is simple: when people play together and not against each other, everyone has more fun. The enduring popularity of Professor Orlick's first Cooperative Sports & Games Book proves just how many people agree. In this second volume -- twice as big, twice as much fun -- Orlick introduces an entirely new round of over 200 active games for indoors and out, and for players of all ages, sizes, and abilities. The Second Cooperative Sports & Games Book presents both completely original games as well as new ways to recycle such traditionally competitive sports as dodgeball or field hockey into fun-for-all challenges. There are: -- Special pointers on teaching cooperative skills to teen-agers and adults -- Outlines from successful cooperative intramural programs -- A whole chapter of games to play with toddlers -- Ideas for making your own playground equipment -- A giant bonus of international cooperative games from the Arctic to the South Pacific. As in his previous volume, Terry Orlick's emphasis here is on imagination, not expensive equipment or special skills, and on the idea that taking the competition out of games and sports simply means leaving more room for fun.
