Snowball Fight



Snowball Fight

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.
