or six different soccer balls, 5 or 6 goals (2 cones per goal, or hoops

items per set).
including; dribbling, passing, shooting, goal tending, strategy,
cooperation, teamwork and critical thinking.
Scatter 5 or 6
goals around the playing area, depending on the number of students in the
class. Personally, I like to
have 5 players on each team, but 4 will work also.
Each goal represents a base for each team and should be comprised
of a goal and 5 matching beanbags or flags and a matching soccerball. The students will then divide their team into goalies,
attackers, and defenders. Teams
may have any number of attackers and defenders, but may have only one
goalie. The object of the
game is to travel around the area and score a goal at each opposing base. Once a goal is scored, the opposing goalie must give 1 of
their own flags or beanbags to the scoring team.
Upon receiving the flag or beanbag, the scoring team must
immediately return it to their base or if playing the flag version give it
to the captain. The first
team to collect a determined number of flags or beanbags will be declared
are some of the vital aspects of the game:
You may only score against each team 1 time.
You can only score
with your own ball.
You can kick or
steal any ball from any team, but remember, you can only score with your
You may not throw any
beanbags or flags at any time.
You may only win
original beanbags from a base (not the ones they have won).
Only goalie can use their hands, but if catching the ball, they
must roll it away.
Infractions may result
in the loss of winnings.
really try to stress the importance of teamwork during this activity.
Students will learn that it is easier to score when they are
passing and working together. Depending
on the goals and scoring difficulty, the game can be modified from scoring
at all goals, to collecting a certain number of flags or beanbags, to win.
and correct the following:
Make sure goalies play in front of their goal and not behind it.
Make sure defenders are not playing as a goalie, defenders need to
stop the shooters before they take a shot.
(I relate them to watch dogs patrolling their yard).
Make sure students do not kick overly hard and they should try to
keep the ball on the ground
Goals must go through the cones below the waist of the goalie.
