State Standard: 1, 2, 3, 5
Equipment: Cones & Several soft ball (rhinoskin, beach balls) Grade: K-1 (possible 2-5)
Purpose: Kicking Skills, Cooperation, and Spatial Awareness
Time: 15-25 Minutes
Game Description: Pretend the gym is covered with slimballs.  I tell the students they must kick the slimeballs out of their backyard (gym separated by cones in the middle). I tell the students they need to put on their slime proof boots (this allows them to kick the ball). The gym is covered with as many foam balls, gator skin balls or foam soccer balls as possible. On the signal, students begin kicking the slimeballs out of their backyard. Students keep kicking until the instructor blows the whistle. For older grades I play for 2-3 minutes and when the game is stopped if there is more slimeballs in a teams backyard the other team wins.
Concerns: Be Careful when kicking the ball. Make sure students are not running into one another. 
This idea from: school district instructional wiki resource.
