Grok’s Game

Grade level: K-8
Equipment: Various obstacles (mats, beams, hurdles), small objects (bean bags, balls, etc)
Game Description: Yes, this game was created by A.I…. a bit scary isn’t it? To be honest, it’s actually not a bad game idea which is why I decided to post it. This game could be played indoors or outdoors. The more creative the obstacle course, the better I’m sure! Don’t forget to subscribe to a real human being (that’s me) before A.I takes over my job. And yours…

Guardians of the Galaxy

Grade level: K-8
Equipment: Cones, Foam balls, Math/Word Cards
Game Description: Another true winner of a game (awesome idea thanks to David Isenberg). This one is cross-curricular, or also AKA literacy/numeracy. A little bit of pre-game work needs to be done here, but not much. You need to make some cards out of paper. These could be math problems, word or vowel cards, geography, science, etc, depending what you want to accomplish. You’ll make 50-100 of these cards and place them down on the floor. Then you’ll make relay teams, and teams will try to collect the cards and place them in the right category on the answer sign. There will be guardians who are assigned to try to protect the cards though…it’s a super fun, non-stop action and learning game all in one!
