Scenario: You have gathered at the monthly meeting for your basketball club. The president addresses you all and explains that the umpires no longer likes the rules or the game and want them to be changed. The president asks your group to create these new rules and then teach them to the umpires.

1. In groups of three to four students research the sport of Basketball and its rules by clicking onto this website: Reading

Basketball rules

You will need to break up the reading within the four people in your group! It is extensive.

2. On a piece of paper write down the current rules of your game in a simple way. Did you miss any?

3. Discussion

As a group, discuss and brainstorm what the new rules could be, you will need at least 10 new rules.

4. Once you all have agreed on these rules, on a new piece of paper create a rule sheet, book or brochure for the umpires explaining the reasoning of these new rules and their consequences.
