7 Final Field Day – “Good-bye” Coosh Ball Flipping: Students place a coosh ball on the face of the racquet. Toss the coosh ball into the air with a little flip and attempt to catch it on the racquet. Older students may try flipping the coosh ball higher. Obstacle Course: Explain the course (through the cone zig zag, high step through the tires, jump over the hurdles, crawl through the tunnel, jump over the mat and run to the finish line). the course is timed. With two stopwatches, you can have two players running the obstacle course at a time. Give the first player about a 10-second lead, and then start the second player. Chicken Cacciatore: Using only 2 lummi sticks each, students race to their own chicken coop (hula hoop approx. 20 ft away) and retrieve a chicken and return to the starting point without dropping the chicken. If dropped they cannot use their hands to pick it up. Once the chicken is placed at the starting point the players must return to the coop and retrieve another chicken and continue on until the coop is empty. Adjust distance for age of children. Teachers please sign up for one event. A student from Girls of Excellence or Men of Distinction will also sign up for one event and assist you at your station. It’s on a first come first serve basis so get your requests in early.

8 Fish Foot Toss: Player is given a rubber fish. The students lie on their backs on the mat with their heads all at the same edge. Placing the fish between the arches of the feet, the students toss the fish by lifting their legs quickly over their heads and letting go of the fish so that it travels in the air for distance. Fishing Hole: Students take off one shoe and one sock. On the signal to begin, the players hop to the pool with a Frisbee and sit on a step board. He then dips the uncovered foot in the pool, picking up one marble with his toes. He then places the marble in his Frisbee repeating this process until he has collected 5 marbles. Noodle Race: A race between two people. They line up at the starting line back-to-back with a half pool noodle between their legs. Holding onto the noodle, they run to the turning line, marked by cones, one going forward, the other backward. When they cross the turning line they reverse and return to the finish line. Clothing Race: Each player lines up on the starting line with a suitcase containing oversized clothes. When the race starts, the player runs to the cone, unpacks his suitcase and puts on the clothes and shoes. He then races back to the starting point wearing the clothes and carrying the suitcase.

9 Bionic Jumping Frogs: The object of the game of to make the frog “jump” as far as possible by placing the frog on the playground ball and dropping the ball to the floor. When the ball hits the floor, the beanbag frog will bounce from the ball high into the air! Give each player some practice time and then come together for a “jump off.” Panning for Gold: Retrieve 15 pennies before your partner. A bucket filled with water and pennies stands about 15 feet from the first player in line. On a signal from the teacher, the pair of students runs to the bucket, picks up one penny, and runs back to place it in a Frisbee. Repeat this process until one person retrieves 15 pennies. Rope Pull Balance: Make your opponent lose his or her balance and fall off the step board. The two opponents squat down on the step boards as each hold one end of the rope. The excess rope is lying on the ground between the players. On a signal, the players begin to pull the rope until one player loses balance. The players cannot let go of the rope or stand up. Alphabet Race: Place a set of 26 alphabet cards about 30 feet from each team. The pair of students runs to the alphabet cards that are scattered on the ground, picking up one card each and returning to the starting line. As cards are returned they should be placed in alphabetical order on the rope. Stepping Stone : Students begin by placing a stepping stone on the ground in front of them and move forward by stepping on the stone. They carry two stones with them. The next stone is placed on the ground so the student can move forward again until the player reaches the cones.

26 School Activity Days Banking on Fitness “Eggs-cellent” Fitness Find Dance Day These are usually culminating or earned events. It can be for citizenship, grades, books read, funds raised, passing SOL’s, etc.

27 “BANKING ON FITNE$$” * This activity is appropriate for elementary students and the concepts may be used for any grade level. Students are given the opportunity to make decisions about how much they will work and which activities they would like to participate in. Students will be able to earn and spend PE money on fun and fitness activities. Many important skills including math and time management are incorporated in this activity and most importantly it keeps students moving and excited about physical activity. ACTIVITY AREA: Track or designated play area Activity stations to purchase with ATM card on interior of track or running area EQUIPMENT: ATM Card, a variety of equipment that you want to use for stations, High- lighters, Sharpies

28 DESCRIPTION: Prior to instruction give classroom teacher enough ATM cards for each student in their classroom. Students should write their names on the back of the cards and bring them to PE class. Start by having students run 1 lap around the track or marked area of field or gym. As each student completes the lap, the PE teacher highlights one of the $5 amounts on their ATM card. Then have students sit down and explain the rules of the activity to them. Talk to them about being honest about how many laps they ran and spending money off their ATM card. After they understand the rules, give them the option to spend the $5 just earned at one of the P.E. Stations on the inside of the track or they can jog laps to earn more money. Students will continue to earn and spend their P.E. money during class. At the end of class ask students to add up the money they have not spent. You can see who liked to save their money and who liked to spend it. RULES: 1. For each lap completed the student will earn $5 on their ATM card. (Have students hold out ATM card for highlighting as they pass the teacher.) 2. Students may earn as much money as they would like. But teacher should announce periodically how much time is left in class. 3. The students can spend their PE money on activities inside the track. Before starting the activity, students must mark off the $ amount spent at that station with a Sharpie. It may be helpful to work in pairs with partners marking each other’s card. 4. Students may stay at an activity for as long as they like. The only exception is if the activity is in high demand. The teacher may ask the person that has been there the longest to leave. 5. Students are to use good manners when jogging, getting their card highlighted, waiting in line or participating at a station.

29 VARITIONS: 1. Jukebox – Have students purchase music that can be played during the class period. Create a list of songs that they can choose from and allow the students to select the music. I have parent volunteers man this station. 2. Have sales/mark-ups on activities. If there seems to be an activity in high demand raise the price. If there is an activity not being used put it on sale. 3. Use P.E. Breaks – Have the students pay for water, bathroom, and resting. 4. Use P.E. Penalties – Have students pay fines for bad manners, bad sportsmanship, untied shoes, and resting without paying. 5. I do this as a field day type event with the entire school participating throughout the day. The PTA helps out at the stations and we include additional stations where the students may purchase popcorn or healthy snacks, bottled water, and tattoos. We also have the school principal at a station where students may toss a wet sponge. HELPFUL TIPS: Make a menu listing the activities and prices and place it on the wall. Place dollar amount signs on the cones beside each station. Have black Sharpies at each station. May be attached to cones with a long string. STATION IDEAS: Hula hoops, Rocket Launchers, Corn Hole (bean bag toss), Jumping rope, Balance boards, Hippity hops, Stilts, Jump balls, Scarf juggling, Cup stacking *Idea taken from Fitness Currency (Challenging by Choice) by Jason Runk


31 Eggs-cellent Fitness Find Stress: The Prize Is Fitness To begin the egg hunt: Class will be in a line, the adult assigned to the group will release 4 students at a time at 10 second intervals. At least one adult (hopefully two) per class will be in front of the prize tables to open eggs when the students return with them. Students may only get one egg per turn and it may not be opened by the student. They are to jog back to the adult and wait in line until their egg can opened. Adult opens the egg, tells the student the activity to perform and lets them know if there is a prize to be won. DO NOT remove the contents of the egg. Put one or both slips of paper back in the egg and place them in the basket next to the cone. Don’t drop them please. If there is a prize, teacher indicates which prize it is to the prize table staff. Students winning pie certificates will return to event site at 3pm to participate in pie throw 1-2 adults will be needed to monitor the egg area so that students do not open the eggs before taking them back to the teacher Teachers drop off their classes outside the main entrance in the oval at the cone with their name—students are to be picked up from the same spot. There will be an adult waiting at the cone for your class. It should be lots of fun for everyone but please emphasize to your students prior to the event that the true “find” or reward is improving their fitness level. Every egg has a task inside but not every egg has a prize. Students will jog down the field and pick up one egg each trip. The more they jog the more fit they will become and the better chance they’ll have of finding an egg with a prize inside. It’s a fun way to increase fitness!
