Fetch Frisbee

Grade level: 5-8
Equipment: Giant frisbee
Game Description: A very unique frisbee game, that uses a Monster Flying Disc (can be found at Flaghouse or other equipment suppliers). Thanks to David Bohlander for this idea.

Birds in a Nest

Grade level: K-4
Equipment: Hula hoops
Game Description: This is a great 3-part progression that has basically 3 games in 1. It’s one of my favourites especially with Kindergartens. Gets players moving around and communicating/strategizing in different ways.

Endzone Escape

Grade level: 4-8
Equipment: Cones, footballs, flags
Game Description: Try a few rounds of Endzone Escape to work on many football skills such as passing, punting, catching, and moving to specific spaces. Another fun game idea that passes the test of awesome games only (thanks Grant Johnson)!

Cleanies vs Messies

Grade level: K-3
Equipment: Cones, Soccerballs (for soccer variations)
Game Description: 5 different ways to play this updated version of Knockemdowners. It really is a classic game, students really move, and practice a variety of skills in fun variations which can be used in any primary PE class or football (soccer) program!

Gorilla Man Gun

Grade level: 2-7
Equipment: None
Game Description: A great game idea with no equipment needed! 3 different actions or poses: Gorilla, Man, and Gun. Uses the ‘Rock Paper Scissors’ format with a running portion and competition as well. Sure to get kids moving and having fun with decisive actions, movement execution, and chasing/fleeing. (Thanks to Angela Pilcher)

Survival Kickball

Grade level: 4-8
Equipment: Kickball (or baseball equipment), bases
Game Description: This game takes the classic game of kickball to another level. Last man standing, survival, be the last kicker on your team to make it to the end! Awesome idea (thanks to Deric Hafer)!
