|Hula Hoop Gathering|
State Standard: 1, 2, 3
|Equipment: Hula Hoops (about 18) 1 cone per group, 1 bean bag per group (different color for every group), Groups of 2-3||Grade: K-3|
|Purpose of Event: Cardiovascular, Throwing, Aiming; Check proper throwing form|
|Time: 10-15 minutes|
|Description:Line up teams at one end of the gym, have each group start at their cone. Hoops are scattered around the gym, different distances away from the cones. On the signal, the first player in each group tosses their bean bag trying to land it inside a hoop. If the bean bag lands in a hoop, the thrower runs and picks up the bean bag and hoop and places the hoop over their cone. The next player takes a turn. Play continues until all the hoops are gathered. One point can be awarded for each hula hoop gathered.
Variations: I also play this as an Easter Game. Treat the Hula-Hoops as the “Easter Baskets” and the beanbags as “Easter Eggs.” Students must try and collect as many Easter Baskets as they can before all the “Candy” is gone.
|Concerns: Move safely in general space, be careful, bean bags are being thrown all the time!|
