After Reading Activities
In the book, the blue team wins. At the end of the book,
members of each team line up. They give the players on the other team high fives. They say, “Good game!” Have any of the readers seen or done this before?
Why do they think the players do this? Talk to
readers about sportsmanship. Explain that
playing sports is about being a team player
and respecting all team players, even those
on the other team.
