Playground Magic

I like to incorporate physical activity into my content area curriculum when possible. I've posted several ways I do this through Spelling Relays, Compass Rose Relays, and most recently Place Value relays.
I've also done Junk Food Tag when learning about nutrition and Landform Tag games during my geography unit. You can see pictures of these game ideas {HERE}.  Currently my school playground is basic in set up, with some four square courts, basketball courts, hopscotch and circle courts and a basic number grid.  My PIE in the SKY wish list would include more interactive playground court games as seen on these sites. I'm allowed to wish right?

(This site has a quarterly drawing for a free USA map stencil)

    Thanks for all the great ideas!!!


  2. I totally agree. Activities in which the children get to run around and reinforce academic concepts without even realising are fantastic. It's so much more fun for them than sitting all day.

    I'll be posting about an active way of learning about shapes tomorrow. Have a look if you're interested!
