Parachute play is a great way to promote teamwork among students. The parachute creates an instant circle, allowing everyone to feel a part of the group and encouraging eye contact and interaction between all participants. Parachute play is also energizing, helping children switch on their brains for more focused learning.  Students of Orchids- The International School, Thane; practiced a few basic parachute movements such as lifting it together on the count of three, shaking it, holding it still, etc. The teacher explained to the children how parachute play involves cooperation or working together in order to make it work. Parachute play provides children with important physical activity and exercise while building gross motor skills, coordination, perceptual motor skills and muscle development.  Social skills are also enhanced as children experience teamwork and cooperation.
