Building Flexibility with Fortnite: Ball Challenge & Race
In this workshop, our expert Gamer Guides lead kids through fun Fortnite activities to improve their flexibility skills.
Today’s Activity: Ball Challenge & Race
Welcome to Building Skills with Fortnite. This will be an online hour session where your child will play Fortnite with the focus of learning thinking skills & Executive Functions they can use in their everyday life! This session will be on the building the skill Flexibility with a couple hints of other skills like focus and self control.
Your child will join our Learning Works For Kids Discord at the appropriate time of your session and will team up with our trained Gamer-Guides. After introducing themselves, the Gamer-Guides and participants will hop into some Fortnite Gameplay!
As far as the actual Gameplay goes we will start by teaming up together in a creative hub created by the Learningworks Gamer Guides. Throughout the session we will exercise a couple of fun activities that practice your child’s Flexibility skills including a Ball Challenge (Hampster ball battle event) and a crazy flexiblity race event that the Gamer Guides built before hand.
After a couple rounds of Ball Challenge we will reflect on how each person could have preformed better, and how flexibility and being ready for anything will help succeed at the event. As well as how they can relate these skills they are using in there everyday life with examples.
Our goal is to learn a little something they can take with them into the everyday world with the mindset of having fun, working as a team and playing a game they enjoy while building life skills.

The LW4K method to using video games as teaching tools relies on strategic teaching principles and our approach of “Detect, Reflect, and Connect.” The purpose of the Detect, Reflect, and Connect steps is to mold the child into an active learner who becomes aware of, engaged in, and contemplative of what she is learning. These steps can enhance motivation and concentration. They also assist in extending learning beyond a particular game or technology and connecting it to the real world.
