State Standard: 1, 2, & 4
|Equipment: 5 Mats, several yarnballs, and noodles||Grade: K-3|
|Purpose of Event: Cardiovascular Endurance, Spatial Awarness, & Control.|
|Time: 15-20 minutes|
|Organization: Set up 5 mats like 5 on a dice in the gym.
Description: Put the students into 5 teams. One team is the middle of the gym on a mat they are the bakers (taggers). The 4 other teams are running and trying to steal the cookies (yarnball) and put them on their mats. After several minutes switch the bakers (taggers).
Variations: Instead, of just running have the students try different locomotor skills (i.e., skipping and/or galloping) while trying to attempt to steal the “cookies.”
|Concerns: Move safely around the gym. Being safe the hockey sticks!!!!|
