State Standard: 1, 2, & 4

Equipment: Cageball, Exercise (stability) Ball , Poly Spots, & gator skin balls. Grade: K-3 (4-5 possibly)
Purpose of Event: Throwing at a moving target, running, teamwork, & manipulation.
Time: 15-20 minutes
Organization:  Divide the class into two teams and have them line up on each side of the gym.  Spread out the poly spots (random colors) along the half-court line. This will act as the boundary line where the students cannot cross.

Germball: Start the game with just one cageball or stability ball and then add more as the game continues. The physical education instructor will explain to the students the cageball/stability balls are the germs and the two teams must try and throw the gator-skin balls (medicine) at the germball, forcing it across the half court line.  The two teams are trying make the germball roll over to the other teams side (across the poly spots) as they do NOT want the germballs on their side of gym.  No student is allowed to touch the cageball at any time with their hands (germs).  **Only the smaller balls (medicine) are used to force the cageball across the line.** 

Variations: For older students you could have them perform a desired exercise if they touch the ball with their hands. They have been in contact the germs!!!

Concerns: Move safely around the gym. Make sure students are NOT throwing the balls at each other!!!
