. Scavenger Hunt
To start, split your class into teams of 4-5 students. Assign each team a different color. Then, give each team a list of items they need to find and a map of the area. The items on the list should be of different levels of difficulty, and some should require team work in order to be found. Each team should have a time limit of 20-30 minutes to find all the items on their list. The team that finds the most items in the allocated time limit wins the scavenger hunt!

Giving prizes at sports days and end-of-year activities is a tradition that dates back centuries. In the past, prizes were given to encourage children to participate in physical activity and to reward them for their efforts. Today, prizes are still given for these reasons, but they are also given to acknowledge the achievements of all children, regardless of their ability. There are many benefits to giving prizes at sports days and end-of-year activities. Prizes can motivate children to do their best and can foster a sense of competition. They can also be a way to recognition for children who may not be the best athletes or the best students.
