Physical Education

Physical Education K - 6th Grade

Regular physical activity will help to improve your child’s mood, health, focus, and learning ability. Children and adolescents ages 6 through 17 years should do 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of physical activity every day. Below is a list of some indoor ideas to keep your child active and healthy during the break.

Monday 5/18 - Beat the Heat (Don’t forget to wear sunblock)

1. Water gun target practice - setup some empty soda cans or plastic cups. Stand about 10 feet away and try to knock the cans over. 

2. Water gun limbo - have someone spray a water gun and try to go underneath it without getting wet. 

3. Have a water fight with your family. 

 

Tuesday 5/19 - Outside Play

1. Water Balloon Volleyball - You will need water balloons and towels. Working with a partner, hold the towel in the air. Try to toss the water balloon and catch it again in the towel. When you have mastered tossing and catching, try to play with other people and toss the water balloon back and forth. 

2. Water Balloon Batting Practice - Use a racket or bat and try tossing a water balloon in the air and hitting it. 

3. Enjoy a lunch time picnic outside on a blanket. Enjoy nature and the sunshine. 

 

Wednesday 5/20 - Heart Healthy

1. Roll the Dice - Create a running track in the driveway, backyard, or sidewalk. Roll two dice and multiply the number by 2. If the product is between 1-9 then run the track; if it is between 10 and 24 then jog the track, if it is between 25 to 36 then walk the track. 

2. Learn how to check your heart rate https://youtu.be/BSlRvD-CZSo

Enjoy the beautiful spring weather by going for a bike ride, get on your skateboard, scooter, rollerblade, or pogo stick around your neighborhood. Remember to maintain physical distance and to wear a helmet. 

 

Tuesday 6/2 - Take Flight

1. Paper Airplane Cornhole - Make 3 different paper airplanes. Get a tupperware, bucket, or basket. Stand about 10 feet behind the bucket and throw your paper airplane. Give yourself 1 point for every airplane that hits the bucket and 2 points for every one that goes inside the bucket. 

2. Make Your Plastic Cup Fly - You’ll just need cups, something to make a hole, string and maybe some tape. Cut or punch a hole into the bottom of the cup. Put the cup on the string through the hole and attach the string to posts or tape to a wall outside. Use your water guns or other water squirting toy to get the cup to move to the other end. Unless your gun is super powerful you’ll need to pay attention to the direction of the water (good target practice). https://allfortheboys.com/water-fun-cup-races/
