    Hi Dale,
    I’m a PE teacher at a large P-12 school in Brisbane. I’m trying to get the classroom teachers to buy into active classroom activities. So I have 2 questions:
    Do you mind if I share the 50 games resource with them?
    What advice do you have for getting more classroom teachers to play games
    Thanks for the resource, I’m definitely keen to go back through the pod casts and see what else you’ve got.

      Hi Ben,
      Thanks for the email mate. Please share the games for sure with the classroom teachers. My advice would be to show the classroom teachers how effective using team building games, icebreakers or energy breaks with the students can be. Get them to watch or even better join in. They will see how amazing these activities are and how good they are for the students overall wellbeing. Or send them to my YouTube channel, as i have loads of videos of me using these games with teachers and students. They can see why these are a must in the classroom. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsZXrbzGo5S5EjP29LUoDbw?view_as=subscriber
      You will also find some great ideas from the amazing guests i have interviewed in pervious episodes Ben. Hopefully this helps, please feel free to email me if you have any questions or would like some more advice mate. I love seeing studnets move, play and learn all at the same time.
