Children are motivated by energizing activities and experience a higher level of accomplishment when they are successful. Scooter tag activities and relays keep students involved and create various levels of work intensity. Scooter team games encourage team play, which focuses on motor skills and enhances communication and sportsmanship. Scooter games help children develop an active identity that allows them to understand the value of physical activity.
Children have a basic need to contribute to a group and be accepted by their peers. Scooter activities offer children many opportunities to work in groups and learn how to communicate and solve problems. As they play, children can compare themselves with their peers and discover both their differences and similarities. Cooperative play also instills sensitivity to others’ needs and values. Working cooperatively can provide situations that require self-control and emotional management. Cooperative scooter exploration offers independent and interesting challenges that can help children become flexible thinkers. The individuals can relate with others through movement, which helps them recognize their own and others’ talents.
