Activity 6

I Can Do That!

Did you know that ‘Paralympics’ comes from the word ‘parallel’? Investigate how some Winter and Summer sports have been modified to ensure athletes with a range of disabilities have opportunities to compete and be successful. 

Use the TREE model to design an inclusive sport for the next Paralympic event to play with your friends. This could be based on an existing or familiar game or sport or a new idea entirely. Develop a set of fair rules and notes on inclusivity and film yourself playing your new sport. Can you teach another class how to play or compete in your new sport?
