I created the Game Category Posters to help my middle school students make sense of the different categories of games we explore in class:
- Target Games
- Striking and Fielding Games
- Net and Wall Games
- Invasion/Territory Games
Along with a game category icon and description, I also include four examples of games that fall within each category so that students could quickly reflect on other possible games with the category.
I hope you enjoy these posters and that – at the very least – they bring some fun colours into your gym! If you’d like to learn more about the teaching games for understanding (TGfU) model, check out my blog post and video introduction.
