Exercise In A Fun Way

This is a fun activity I adapted from learning at TAHPERD a few years ago.  Any one can play this game even adults.  If you are looking for a new way to exercise and have a change of pace for your routine give this game and some of my other ones a try. 

Who says exercising has to be boring or repetitive.  You could even turn it into a family workout.  Instead of using the spots you could use paper plates.   What are you waiting for go get active!

TeachPhysEd: Speed Ball

Fun game I created a few months ago.  Grades 4th and 5th seemed to enjoy it a lot.  This is a great game that middle school and high school students would enjoy.  You don't need a lot of equipment.  Just a tennis ball and hula hoop. 

My coworker and I got very addicted to this game.  We spent some of our planning period playing it.  It involves hand-eye coordination, striking, and strategy thinking.  If you think of any adaptations please let me know!

Keep on moving,
