Outer Space Ball


Outer Space Ball

State Standard: 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5
Equipment: Two Mats folded and standing on end, 8 foam disks (Power Sources), 8 Cones, 8 gator-skin balls (Power Sources), 10 short-handled paddles, & and any number of different sized yarn balls (meteors). Grade: K-5
Purpose of Event: Demonstrate throwing at a target and using short-handled paddles visual traction.  
Time: 15-20 minutes
Description:Students will be throwing meteors to knockout their opponents 8 power sources. Five students with a paddle may protect their power sources (power protectors). One person guards every cone & mat (5 guards per side). As soon as object is knocked down they put the paddle down and become a thrower. When all 4 balls & discs are knocked down the game is over.
Set-up:Folded mats standing on end with 4 foam disks (power sources) place on the corners. Gator Skin ball (power source) placed on a cone. Mats & cones place on the blue & white tape lines at each end of the gym.

Students may NOT cross the centerline (half court line) when throwing their ball. Student are not allowed to throw the gator-skin balls ONLY the yarn balls.  

Concerns: Move safely in general space.
This idea is from: Kris Smith, PE Teacher, John F. Kennedy Elementary School, Sioux Falls, SD.
