Badlands Speedway

Badlands Speedway

State Standard: 1, 2, & 4

Equipment: Cones and Deck Rings Grade: K-5
Purpose of Event: Running & Teamwork
Time: 10-15 minutes

Set cones around the outside of the gym to make an oval track.

Have students sit in groups of 2-4 at each cone.
Place a deck tennis ring on each cone this is the steering wheel (baton)
Each student is the race car driver, have them drive 1-4 laps around the track then hand the ring to the next driver, 1st group to be sitting by the cone wins.
Variations: Have students perform different locomotor movements (i.e., skipping and galloping) while moving around the cones.
Concerns: Move safely around the gym.
This idea is from: Mark Struck, Physical Education Teacher, Sioux Falls, SD.
