Any materials needed for the sports that are going to be played
Keep it Simple
Think of some sports that are typically for “boys” or “girls” (hockey vs. gymnastics for example). Play some of the sports provided it is safe to do so. After playing, discuss why they are considered a sport for girls, boys or anyone, and if it’s true.
Take it Further
Compare different rules and uniforms that men and women have in different sports. Create a chart or diagram to see if there are any similarities and differences.
