88TEACHING VALUES SECTION 4 THE FIVE EDUCATIONAL VALUES OF OLYMPISM 1Younger learners could make up a game, set up a code of rules and identify some " punishments" if the rules are broken. 2Older learners could work with another person or with a group to make up different kinds of games using different kinds of equipment. Materials: balls of different sizes, bean bags, scoops and whiffle balls, hula hoops, skipping ropes, benches, other small sports equipment; For the younger children – provide a collection of different types of sport equipment. Ask each group to pick one item and make up a game and the rules. PROCEDURE 1Make up and photocopy cards for each of the " make- up- a- game" tasks below. 2Put # 1 & # 2 in one envelope ( A); put # 3 and # 4 in another envelope ( B); put # 5 and # 6 in a third envelope ( C). 3Learners will start in pairs. Each pair will pick a " make- up- a- game" card from the A envelope. Each pair chooses one of the instructions on their game card and plays the game that they make up. Note that half of the cards ask the learners to cooperate as they play their game; the other half asks them to compete against each other. 4Each pair of learners will join up with another pair of learners. Each group of four learners then picks a " make-up- a- game" card from envelope B, and follows one of the instructions on their card to make up a game. Again, note that half of the cards ask the learners to cooperate as they play their game; the other half asks them to compete against each other. 5Each group of four learners then joins with another group of four learners, and follows the same procedures, choosing a card from envelope C. For games # 5 from envelope C, eight learners will be cooperating to reach an objective during the game; for # 6 a group of four learners will be competing with another group of four learners. 6 Learners could then teach their games to other groups. Offer a prize to the game that is voted " best game" by the learners. INVENTA FAIRPLAY GAME MAKE FAIR PLAY BEHAVIOUR A PRIORITY FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS IN YOUR SPORTS CLUBS AND SCHOOLS.

FOR DISCUSSION What is the common idea in each of these quotations? What do these " golden rules" have to do with fair play? Write a golden rule for your club or classroom? Make posters that represent these different cultural ideas. BelowAthens 2004: Brazil shakes the hands of Team USA after their 3- 2 victory in the women's indoor Volleyball quarter- final match.
