50 GRRRRReat! – Transition Games Parks and Recreation Ontario 2008 Annual Education Forum Presenter – Alf Grigg mylatestscoop@hotmail.com One of the greatest times of risk working with children and youth is a lull in classroom and recreation activities when your guard is down. A transition game can be a bridge between different classroom and recreation activities when they finish early, too early to start the new activity, a bus is late, rainy day recess, children need a time out and the list goes on. The following Transition Games can be used in the classroom, open space and the outdoors. This Transition Games are taken from the publication “50 GRRRRReat Transition Games!” which is available through CIRA – Ontario Email: office@ciraontario.com Website: ciraontario.com My Favourite Sport ACTIVE Age Children/Youth Equipment None Players stand in a circle. The leader starts by going into the middle of the circle And says “My favourite sport is jogging” and jogs on the spot. Everyone jogs until another player goes into the middle and says their favourite sport and does the body action. This continues till all the players have had an opportunity. Animal Scenes ACTIVE Age Children Equipment None Players find a partner. Partners run around. The leader calls out a phrase and the players must find their partner and depict the scene.
