This colorful, fun parachute incorporates 18 character trait keywords and definitions, creating limitless teaching opportunities.
Promote Positive Character
Each parachute features character traits and definitions listed on the panels (the 24-panel option repeats 6 traits). Examples include Courage, Confidence, Sportsmanship, Tolerance, and Integrity. This parachute is a great way to promote valuable characteristics in students while they are having fun! One activity example is to place a ball on the parachute, and have students call out traits as it hits each panel. After a predetermined amount of time, have students read aloud the definition and give an example of a time they demonstrated that trait.
Featuring a rip-stop nylon construction with a half-inch thick perimeter rope, this durable parachute is made to last. A reinforced center mesh piece adds to the overall durability and keeps balls in play. All handles are double-stitched providing students with an easy grip. Choose from 2 diameter sizes with a varying number of handles to best fit your class size and activity.
