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: GERTRUDE MCFUZZ
Skills: EYE/HAND COORDINATION, GROSS MOTOR
Description: DIVIDE CLASS INTO 6 TEAMS EACH TEAM LINES UP BEHIND THE LINE. 1ST PERSON USING A UNDER HAND SWING MUST HIT GERTRUDE MCFUZZ (BIRDIE WITH STREAMERS) WITH THE TENNIS RACKETS AND LAND HER IN A TREE (HULA HOOPS). TEAMS KEEP TRACK OF HOW MANY GERTUDES THEY CAN GET IN THE TREE. KEEP GOING UNTIL TIME IS UP (PLEASE MAKE SURE HITS ARE ONLY DONE UNDER HAND AND THAT STUDENTS ARE BEING SAFE WITH THE RACKETS.
