Beanbag Leap Frog


Beanbag Leap Frog

State Standard: 1, 3, 4

Equipment: Poly spots with the numbers 5-20, one crate, 4 hula-hoops, and 4 beanbag frogs Grade: K-2
Purpose of Event: Cardiovascular endurance, underhand/overhand throwing, and math skills (addition)
Time: 15-20 minutes
Organization: The crate will be placed in the center of the gym.  The poly spots will be scattered around the crate.  The further away from the crate the higher the number on the poly spot.  The hula-hoops will be placed at each corner on the outside of the poly spots.  One beanbag frog will be place in each hoop. I will divide the student into four groups and place each group behind their hula-hoop.

Beanbag Leap Frog:

The object of the game is to collect the most poly spots and earn the most points.  On “go”, one person from each team will run to a poly spot and try to toss their frog into the crate from that spot.  If they make it, they get to pick up that spot and put it in their hula-hoop.  If they miss they get their frog and hand it to the next person in line.  Game continues until all spots are picked up.  At the end of the game each team adds up their points, by adding up the numbers on the poly spots in their hula-hoop.  The team with the most points wins.

Concerns: Making sure students are NOT moving the poly spots closer and staying within their relay lines (taking turns).
This idea is from: I have seen a version of this from several teachers.
