You may remember the game Dodgeball from your elementary years. Did you know that school districts in Texas and Maine banned the game in 2001? Is dodgeball a good, clean game or is it a mean-spirited sport? Some would argue that dodgeball is a fun way to teach skills such as concentration and hand-eye coordination. Others argue that it is too violent and can lead to bullying. It can be a very active game, but a child that is hit early in the game has to sit out for quite a while. What do YOU think- should it be banned or included in elementary programs? Comment below.

    included no doubt.
    The activity has so many good things to provide to the children, and as to the problem concerning the inactivity once you’re are shot, I have actually made an adjustment to the activity, which deals with this issue and it works !!

    I can post a more detailed description, if interested?
