Abstract
The problem in this study is the low social interaction in elementary school age children both between personal and group. Especially in today's digital era, many children use smartphones, so direct communication is increasingly minimal, including in social interactions and children's play. Based on these problems, it is necessary to make efforts to increase social interaction through activities that are in accordance with the characteristics of the age of primary school students, and in this study conducted through the revitalization of traditional games. The formulation of this research problem: how to revitalize traditional games as a medium of social interaction for elementary school students in Makassar City. The research location is 15 elementary schools which are representatives of each sub-district in the city of Makassar. The research approach used is multi-method (Jonker & Pennink, 2010; 92) which combines qualitative and quantitative presented descriptively. The results showed that the revitalization of traditional games through the revitalization of traditional games in the elementary school curriculum was carried out by integrating traditional games in the Sports Physical Education Subject. The social interactions that occur during the learning process: 1) Cooperation in group games is indicated by the incorporation of competencies possessed by each child in the team, 2) Accommodation in the form of self-adjustment of each student in dealing with group problems, so that opposition between students or between teams can be ended . 3) Assimilation in the form of students' ability to combine elements of Makassar art and character values that emerge from each game, 4) Paternalism in the form of a more dominant role of team leader and to determine the decision of team play strategies.
