This is the most effective, innovative, and fun game we use in our physical education class. When we play this game, students come in the gym jumping up and down with excitement. Students leave class sweating with a smile on their face. Academic classroom teachers love to see this game played because it reinforces what they are learning in the Math class. We try to play this game once every 9 weeks to not only polish their math skills, but to also build endurance for the mile run. The game is also flexible to many units. If we are doing this during our basketball unit, we will take the hurdles out and have the students dribble a basketball on their lap. Materials: -15 Hula Hoops, 30 dice, 6 cones, Hurdles, noodle, way to keep score. I have used this game for classes with 20-80 students. It is great for large classes and gets all students involved. This is a game that integrates all 6 National PE Standards with classroom Math standards. I have used this game with grades K-5.
