Mission Impossible



Mission Impossible

State Standard: 1, 2, 3, 5
Equipment: 3-4 Scooters, 5 Frisbee’s, 5 Ropes, [Same color as team], 3-4 Mats, 1-2 Balance Beams, Tires, Benches, & anything to create a challenge. Music: “Mission Impossible” Theme Song Grade: K-5
Purpose: Teamwork – Cooperative Learning
Time: 15-25 Minutes

Set-up items in the gym anyway to create a challenge for the students. 


  • Each team attempts to get ALL to the to the other side together as a “team.” Discourage students to take off with their team. The first team to make it to the other side wins.


  • Each participate on both teams must use the equipment given to make it across to the other side WITHOUT touching the gym floor. Any student who does touch the floor MUST return back to their starting side and begin again. 
  • Team equipment can only be used by designated team. The team of that color. Equipment must be used in the “journey” from one side of the gym to the other. 
  • Frisbee’s can only be stepped on!!! DO NOT SLIDE!! 
Concerns: Be Careful when trying to step from one Frisbee to another. Make sure students sit on the scooters (DO NOT STAND). 
This idea is from: Jim Jensen, Retired Physical Education Teacher, Sioux Falls School District, Sioux Falls, SD.
