Use this Dance Safety Snap resource to help your students learn about the hazards involved in dance!
This is a versatile resource that can be used for a variety of stages to meet outcomes that relate to safety within dance subjects. This is played using the same principles of traditional snap. The game should be played in groups of 2-3 and the deck should be dealt out evenly into piles of cards. Each Safety Snap card has a picture and information displayed on it that relate to safety in the dance classroom. Each player starts with their decks face down and places cards onto the pile without looking at them beforehand. If a player places a card on top of a card that is identical, whoever snaps the pile fastest wins the round and they add the pile of cards to their existing hand. Keep playing until there are no cards left.
The cards can also be used for a variety of other fun games that will also engage your students in learning about safety. Not only will these cards help your students to learn about hazards in dance, they’re also fantastic to have on hand for fast finishers.
A Dance Safety Quiz is also included in this resource to help reinforce your students’ knowledge of hazards and safety in dance classes. Alternatively, the quiz can be used as a formal assessment task.
