|State Standard: 1, 2, 4, & 5|
|Equipment: Several Yarn balls, Bowling/Foam Pins (snowmen), poly spots, & cones.||Grade: K-2|
|Purpose of Event: Throwing Snowballs to knock down their opponents snowman. Throwing Skills. Students may roll the snowball as well.|
|Time: 15-20 minutes|
Set-up: Place various bowling/foam pins around the entire gym on the poly spots. Divide the gym into halves using the cones.
Description: The two teams try to be the first team to throw a snowball (yarn ball) at the other teams snowmen (bowling/foam pins) and knock them down. Students are NOT allowed to guard; however if a student catches a snowball in the air before it touches the ground they are able to set a snowman back up (on it’s poly spot). The team that knocks all the other teams snowmen down first is the winner.
Rules: Students may NOT cross the center-line (half court line) when throwing their ball.
|Concerns: Move safely in general space.|
