I recently learned about an awesome Dr. Seuss-inspired field day planned and organized by Patti, an elementary school PE teacher. Here is one of her 21 stations:
Title: GREEN EGGS AND HAM: “SAM I AM” relay race
Skills: EYE HAND COORDINATION, BALANCE AND AGILITY
Description: DIVIDE STUDENTS INTO 5 TEAMS. STUDENTS PLACE A PIECE OF HAM (orange bean bag) ON THEIR HEAD (FOR THE K-1 GRADES THEY CAN PLACE THE HAM ON THE OTHER HAND FLAT LIKE A WAITER’S TRAY.) PLACE AN EGG ON THE SPOON. ON GO, STUDENTS WILL HOLD 1 HAND TO HOLD THE SPOON. STUDENTS WILL RACE DOWN AROUND THE CONE AND BACK IF THE EGG OR HAM FALLS, THE STUDENT MUST STOP PUT THEM BACK ON AND CONTINUES. THIS IS A NEVER-ENDING RELAY WHERE THEY KEEP GOING UNTIL TIME IS UP.
