Build Team Skills
When students have to rely on a partner to move with them, teamwork and communication benefit tremendously. With these strapped to their legs, students will have no choice but to work together if they want to win, communicating verbally and developing a joint effort as they go. Students will quickly see that they need to be patient and clear, which helps to develop these fundamental skills. All of this skill building occurs naturally in a 3-legged race, which means students will be benefitting while they’re focused on fun.
Simple, Secure Design
Thanks to the stretchy construction of these elastic bands, they’re easy to slip on and off in seconds, eliminating time spent trying to work them on in a secure way. Using Velcro® connectors, students are able to adjust the fit to their preference and secure it so it doesn’t come loose when the whistle sounds and the race begins. The Velcro® is also covered by a cotton/polyester sleeve, which prevents rubbing and friction that could cause skin irritation.
Bright Rainbow® colors make it easy to see which teams are striving and which are struggling. Teachers can spend more time helping struggling teams work on their communication. It’s also easy for students to remember which teams they’ve raced against and which teams they’ve been a part of. Set includes 6 bands, 15”L (25”L fully stretched) x 1-3/4”W each.
