GAME OF THE MONTH!
Pass The Squeezeelementary P.e. Games On
This includes some classics like “Pass the parcel” and some fun new games like “Hear it! These musical games are perfect for kids in many age ranges and will deliver many hours of fun. Why incorporate music games for the classroom? Music plays a very important role in a child’s development. I like games that disguise that we are working on fitness. In other words, I like to get them moving in a fun way so that they don’t realize they are working out. This is a fun and easy game that targets core fitness. Divide class up into teams of about 5. Teams lie down on their backs in a line with shoulders touching. On this website you will find a wide variety of elementary physical education games and activities, including warm-up games, cool-down games, cooperative games, tag games, and dance activities/games. I have spent countless hours and nights searching for good physical education games.
- PE Games: Pass the Frog This is a great teambuilding activity or icebreaker that you can play with your Physical Education classes. I’ve used it with Kindergarten through 5th grade and even with adults.
- Teams score when they move an object into the opposing team’s zone and successfully attack that team’s goal or target area. Tactical problems related to invasion games include maintaining possession, attacking and/or defending a goal, winning the ball, etc. Examples of invasion games include soccer, basketball, football, rugby and hockey.
