This week in Physical Education I will be targeting Ohio PE Standards 5 and 6 related to personal and social responsibility and the value of physical activity. I chose to use pool noodle games to teach these concepts. I am adapting my lessons from ideas described in the book Chicken and Noodle Games 141 Fun Activities With Innovative Equipment. The games will invite the students to use skills related to throwing and catching, cooperation, conflict resolution, problem solving and social interaction.
|Students work in teams to lift a ball.|
|Partners work together to carry a noodle to a target.|
|A team of 4 struggle to hold onto the ball.|
|Students try to move around the gym while stuck to a friend.|
|Success, "We picked it Up!"|
