Stay Composed

Students were challenged to stay in a static position (yoga pose) for ten seconds.  Once they completed their task, they earned a popsicle stick to be placed in the center hula hoops.  Each team captain, whom changed frequently, had the opportunity to get a point for their team by rolling the highest number dice.  Stay composed helped strengthen their muscles and bones while playing a game to keep them fully engaged.

Angry Birds

Students threw their frisbees (birds) in an attempt to knock down the pins (pigs). They were able to choose which pigs to knock down and the distance they wanted to throw.  The further back they threw their frisbee, the more points they were able to make for their team.  Teamwork, persistence and accuracy were essential to knocking the pigs down.

Preamble Scramble

Elementary students were learning about the Preamble in their classrooms.  This was a good opportunity for PE to assist by making it into a game.  Students ran to the other side of the gym to retrieve words.  They then ran back to their hula hoop and attempted to find the correct spot in the Preamble.  Once all the words were correctly placed, the game ended.
