DIDACTIC UNIT FIVE.docx
Students have decided in the English class which sports they will work and they chose tug of war, "sokatira", cob gathering" lokotx biltzea", weight carrying "txingak eramatea" and sack carrying " saku lasterketa". Their choice was because they are very popular and they can be seen in any local festivity. Besides, the materials which are needed to practise them are at hand. They are easy to understand and perform by the Greek studensts. To finish, they are fun to be able to compete both schools.
In the P.E class, the teacher also tells them the type of materials needed and the instructions how to perform them step by step.
After the sports have been explained by PE teacher. In the english class, students create tutorials related to both sports. Each group works one sport.
Students prepare the script for their tutorials, including the materials and the rules.
They also summarise the origin of the sport in a short sentence. They will teach our Greek partners how to play them so that they can learn to play them, because when they visit us in May next year, we will organise a competition to see who will win.
We have chosen two samples of each sport.

Once Elexalde students have learnt all the rules related to the Greek game "mila" presented by the Greek students and have seen the videos about it , they have played it in the Physical education class.
3rd Junior High School, Katerini
Title of the activity: Traditional Greek sports (P7)
Objective: The objective of this activity is to discover the most popular Greek traditional sports and then demonstrate them to our Basque partners.
November was the month of sports, so we thought it would be a good idea to devote it to Ancient Greece and the Olympic Games, as this is our heritage in the athletic field. We had the students trained in three sports which belong to the past and the present, the Marathon, the shot put and the javelin throwing preserving thus the bond between Ancient and Modern Greece.
As Olympus, the mountain of the gods, was their home, we organised the Marathon exactly as it occurred in ancient times. The students recited the oath, ran 2km and at the end the winners were crowned with an olive wreath. Chilly weather wasn't an impediment as the spirit of our ancestors warmed our hearts. After that, we moved to the stadiun of our town to perform some shots in the other two sports.
Here you can see the Greek team riciting the Olympic Anthem at the foot of Mt. Olympus.
You can learn more about the Shot Put by watching the video below.
As for the games, we chose to play two traditional games, "tzami" and "mila". Do you want to learn how to play them? You can follow the dots in the interactive pictures below and learn about the rules of each game, the materials needed and also watch a video of the Greek team demonstrating how each game is played.
The whole activity ended with the recording of the Olympic Anthem by the school choir.
The benefits a lot: Revival of the Olympic Spirit, participation, collaboration, the feeling of belonging to a group, the pleasure of the game, laughs and satisfaction.
