Games in the Grass Field Day Activity

I can demonstrate various locomotor movements while strengthening my sorting skills and color recognition.

Lesson Notes/materials:

Materials: rainbow assortment of these items

  • yarn balls
  • nubby balls
  • tennis balls
  • wiffle balls
  • Bean bags
  • Scarves
  • Rainbow Hula Hoops
  • 4 Cones

Games in the Grass ECAPE Activity Plan

I can demonstrate the locomotor skill of jumping forward over a moving long rope (a student on each end will wiggle the long rope).

Lesson Notes/materials:

*Three long ropes

*Six cones to mark the ends of the rope and cones to mark the waiting areas.

Domino Duel

The students will be divided up into pairs and a group of three if needed.  The students will follow the directions of the game to add sums and compare numbers.  The student with the higher sum keeps both dominoes.  The student with the most dominoes at the end of the game is the winner.

If needed, students may use manipulatives to solve the addition problems, but may just count the dots on the dominoes.

Physical Education: Dance

I can model new (for teacher emerging) rhythm and dance skills by practicing the wobble, the freeze, hokey pokey and just dance kids songs.

“Take Me Away” Boat Design

In “Take Me Away” Boat Design, students will review what they know about sinking and floating while watching something float that you wouldn’t expect to see: a pineapple float. The pineapple has many pockets of air in it; therefore, it floats in water. Objects that weigh less than water float and objects that weigh more sink. Can you name a type of boat? The teacher-librarian will present the different parts of a boat and discuss the different types of hulls. Why does a displacement hull float better than a planning hull? Students will construct a boat that will float under the weight of 10 decorating stones.

Birds on a Wire

Number recognition, greatest to least and least to greatest.


Physical Education: Bean Bag Body

Warm up routine,   Body Talk Song follow directions of the song to help point to body parts (move your eyebrows up and down…).

Students will pick up and count 5 bean bags, and place them on their polyspot. When directed by the teacher the student will pick up 1 beanbag and place it on their head using the rhyme to help reinforce concept (cranium-cranium helps me think) and walk across the room, and place it into the bucket. Go back to your polyspot pick up another bean bag place it on their biceps (biceps biceps bend my arm), repeat with body parts: heart (my heart beats to pump my blood), Tummy (abdominals) (Tummy muscles stand up tall), Thigh (quadriceps quadriceps help me kick).  Repeat the phrase as you hold the bean bag and walk it to the bucket.  Use hand over hand assistance to redirect and assist if needed.
