Cardio Bop Ball

A great fast paced game that infuses two levels of competition, running and throwing. Students are split into teams. Team members are numbered 1-4.
Instructor calls out a number. Those with the called number race around track and back to team.
Once back the student then picks up the team ball and tries to hit the target ball in the center of area. Throwing continues until the target ball is hit.
At this point, the game is reset and a new number is called.

Snow Day Fitness Fortune Teller

Ideas for this activity came from HPE Merritt: Health and Physical Education. Try this fun activity with your family and friends when you miss PE due to snow days or cold days. Making a Fortune Teller Before you begin, download a PDF of the fitness fortune teller template here, print, and cut around the perimeter (step 1) or create your own template. Next, fold it down the center (step 2). Then open it and fold it down the center again so you now have perpendicular creases (step 3). Open it and fold it corner to corner so the paper is now the shape of a triangle (step 4). Open it and fold it corner to corner again, the opposite way (step 5). Open it with the printed side face down and fold one of the corners in so the point meets the center of the paper, aligning it with the creases you made earlier (step 6). Do this with each corner (step 7), until all the corner have been folded in to the center point (step 8). Next flip it over so the colors are face down and pull one corner back in toward the center, aligning the point with the center of the paper (step 9). Repeat until all corners have been folded in to the center (step 10). Now pick up the fortune teller and slide your thumb and index fingers from each hand under the four colored flaps, pushing them in to the center (step 11). When it's done, it should look like the photo in step 12 above.

When the gym is in use we still have fun in PE. Student learn how to adapt old games and create new ones.  Today they participated in PE in the cafeteria and payed exercise bingo. If you do not have the book No Gym? No Problem, I highly recommend it.
