State Standard: 1, 3, & 4

Equipment: Parachute large enough for all to hold.
Grade: K-2
Purpose of Event: Movement, teamwork, Upper body strength, Move safely in general space.
Time: 10 minutes

Place a bean bag on top of the chute. After a certain time, stop the waves and see what color the bag last landed on. Score one point against that color each time. Variation: place a jump rope on the chute: score one point against the color that permits the rope to jump off the chute. They may try to catch the snake’s tail to save their team.


Concerns: Cautious moving around the parachute, could be slippery if stepped on. Watch were you are going.
