State Standard: 1, 2, & 4
|Equipment: One scooter per student, four different colored jerseys, four garbage cans marked with one colored jersey, unlimited equipment (balls, beanbags, etc.)||Grade: K-2|
|Purpose of Event: To demonstrate scooter safety and cooperative skills using group challenges.|
|Time: 20-25 minutes|
|Organization: Place four laundry baskets in the corners of the gym. Have different colored jersey’s placed on each to represent the color for each team. Divide students into four teams. Give each team one scooter. The four laundry baskets and other equipment is scattered throughout the gym.
Scooter Scramble: The challenge is for each team to scramble using their scooter, collect equipment (only one at a time), and place the equipment in their laundry baskets marked with their colored jersey. Members must stay on their scooters. When no equipment is left, teams count the equipment they collected in their laundry basket.
Equipment is scattered again. The new challenge is to collect more equipment than previously.
Variations: Change team members by switching jerseys. Identify only certain equipment to collect (only beanbags, only balls, only red equipment, etc.)
|Concerns: Remind students about the importance of scooter safety.|
