State Standard: 1, 2, & 3
|Equipment: 20+ Bowling Pins, 20-30 Foam Balls, 4-6 folding mats
|Purpose of Event: Throwing over hand, Opposite foot forward, Using correct throwing skills
|Time: 20-25 minutes|
Divide class into 2 groups; one group one each half of the gym. Each area has a snow fort (mats) and 10-15 snowmen (bowling pins) scattered in front of each fort. The object is for each team to throw “snowballs” and try to knock down the other team’s snowmen. Players may leave the fort to get a ball but must throw from back on their fort. Play until one team knocks down all of the other team’s snowmen, or 2-4 minutes.
Move forts back or forth in playing area depending on the throwing ability of the group. All snowmen should be placed in front of the forts.
|Concerns: Be cautious! Use soft balls, keep the focus on throwing at the pins,
