NAME OF ACTIVITY:
Beanbag toe tag
8 cones, 1 beanbag per player, 10-12 bowling pins (optional), Volleyball
Teamwork, sliding objects at a target, eye-foot coordination, agility,
evading and dodging, under hand throws.
Divide the playing area into two equal halves, using cones or
volleyball net depending on the size of the area.
Personally, I like the volleyball net whenever possible as it
reduces students being hit with air balls (I leave about 12 inches of
space between the floor and the net).
At each end of the playing area create a dungeon (holding area) as
well as a target to rescue students.
I have used mats, boards or bowling pins to create targets.
The target area should be about 32 inches wide, but can be modified
to meet the skill level of the students.
When using bowling pins, I will use 5 or 6 pins and I will adjust
the distance of the pins to match the skill level of the students.
Class is divided into two teams, one team an each side of the
playing area. Each player is
given a beanbag. On the
signal players attempt to slide the beanbag into the feet of opposing
players. If player is hit he
must go to the jail on the opposing teams side of the field.
A player may leave jail when a beanbag comes into the jail and that
player retrieves it, or when a bowling pin has been toppled. When he gets the beanbag he may go to his own side, while
holding the beanbag above his head. The
game is over when all players from a team have been eliminated.
In some games, I will designate 2 or 3 special beanbags.
If one of these special beanbags hit a target, all students are
rescued from the jail. I will use this same concept with bowling pins except I will
designate one of the pins as a special pin.
This pin will either be made differently, or will be a different
color to make it easily distinguishable from the others.
I send students who throw a beanbag over the line (in the air), to the dungeon. With the volleyball net, they go if they hit the net.
