Abstract

We have developed a full-body interaction game that allows children to cooperate and interact with other children in small groups. The intent of the full-body interaction game developed in this study is to encourage cooperation between children. The game requires two children to jump together with the same timing. We let children experience the game, and observed the children using several strategies to coordinate the timing of their jumps. These included shouting time, watching each other, and jumping in a constant rhythm as if they were skipping rope. In this manner, we observed the children playing the game while cooperating with each other. Therefore, the game enabled children to experience cooperation with others by using body movements.
