Planet Invasion

Some classes are learning about planets and the solar system so Planet Invasion was a great way to incorporate it into PE.  Each team of students was given a planet and they needed to protect their valuable items from floating throughout the solar system.  This game not only helped with remembering the names of the planets but also increased their heart rate.
