The objective of the following paper is to present the experiences gathered during the execution of The Adventure Pedagogy elective module attended by the students of pedagogy of the Faculty of Pedagogy and Psychology of the University of Silesia. Another issue introduced therein are the results of trial surveys concerning adventure pedagogy and field games conducted among students. The paper also includes a reference to the work method called live action role-playing (LARP). The results of trial surveys, wherein LARPs were applied, conducted in the first grade of a primary school in Piekary Śląskie, can also be found in the paper. The main objective of the research was to verify the premise that a role-playing game in the form of live action role-playing, based on an original script, influences the integration of children at their early school age. The applied methods included a quasi-experiment and a case study. The undertaken activities consisted in performing LARP with a group of children who were only starting to get to know one another. The technique of categorized observation was employed here. The case study was complemented with a casual conversation with particular children. An original tool called “The Group Integration Observation Sheet” was constructed, as well as an original script of live action role-playing written – “In a Fairytale Land” in order to conduct this research. The conclusion, based on the findings, is that live action role-playing applied in group activities helps in building the group’s proper structure and fostering positive relations within it. LARP makes it possible to experience and learn, which in turn facilitates participant bonding.
