Frisbee Dot Shooting

Frisbee Dot Shooting

State Standard1, 2, & 4

Equipment One Hula-Hoop, 12 cones, 12 foam Frisbee, & several poly spots Grade: 2-5
Purpose of Event: Throwing (Frisbee tossing), teamwork, adding (math skills), & honesty.
Time: 15-20 minutes
Organization: Set up 6 multi-colored cones on side of the gym with another 6 on the other side. Place a foam Frisbee behind each cone on the floor. Duct tape one hula-hoop in the middle of the gym (prevent it from moving). Scatter several (15-20) poly spots around the hula-hoop with varying distances. 

Students will work in pairs (relay style). On the signal, a student runs with their foam Frisbee in hand to a poly spot (their choice). Once they have reached their desired poly spot they attempt to toss their Frisbee into the hula-hoop while standing on the poly spot. If the students’ Frisbee lands inside the hula-hoop that student picks up their poly spot and Frisbee and returns this to their partner (placing the obtained poly spot on the floor behind their cone). Once they have made it back to their partner they hand the Frisbee to their partner who then runs to their desired poly spot and attempts to toss the Frisbee in the hula-hoop as well! Now, if the student does NOT make it in the hula-hoop they must go retrieve their Frisbee, but NOT pick-up the poly spot and wait for their next turn. This keeps going until all the poly spots are gone. Once they are all gone the teacher has the students count to see how many poly spots were obtained from each team to see who had the most. 

Rule: Make sure students are NOT sliding the poly spots closer to the hula-hoop! It must stay were it was originally put on the floor! 

Concerns: Move safely around the gym.
