Kind of Activity:
Re-create Blitzball and invent a game that highlights students' own unique skills
Common Core Standards:
Take students outside or to the gymnasium, provide them with a football, and see if they can re-create the game of blitzball based on Knowles' description in the text. Key points:
- There is a ball carrier who tries to carry the ball to the other side of the field.
- Everyone tries to knock down the ball carrier, but without using their arms.
- If you knock down the ball carrier, you get the ball.
- You can throw the ball to other people, but they can refuse it.
