Kidshealth.org has some good materials exploring sportsmanship ideas with different age youth. Start with a discussion such as:
Describe what it means to be a good sport.
- What behaviors demonstrate good sportsmanship? What behaviors don’t?
- How do kids learn sportsmanship? Who or what affects this the most? Why?
- Why is it important to be a good sport? How does good sportsmanship affect the way you feel while playing a game?
- How does unsportsmanlike behavior affect how you feel and play?
Follow-up with one of the age-appropriate activities found here: http://kidshealth.org/classroom/
Activities include such things as deciding if a player in the case example is behaving as a good sport or not, make a skit about sportsmanship, etc.
