P.E. Central Lesson Plan: Take It Home
Purpose of Activity:
To have students practice their chasing, fleeing and dodging skills.
Suggested Grade Level:
Materials Needed:
Bean bags; rubber rings or any safe equipment that can be easily grasped (need 30 or more objects); jump ropes; hoop; pinnies
Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

Equipment is scattered behind safety lines (or mark area with cones) along two sides of the playing area. Two taggers (wearing pinnies) are chosen to begin protecting the objects from being "taken" by the non-taggers. At the "go" signal, non-taggers (who are standing at "home" behind safety lines or cones along the other two sides of the area) try to retrieve one object at a time from behind the safety lines and take it back "home" without getting tagged by the taggers (who can go anywhere in the general space).

Non-taggers are "safe" any time they get cross into the "home" area and thus cannot be tagged by the taggers. If tagged, a non-tagger becomes a "tagger" (if the non-tagger had a piece of equipment in his/her hand when tagged, he/she puts it back where it originally was, and then gets a pinnie to put on). Students should work together to either get "non-taggers" tagged, or to retrieve the equipment.

Start a new game when only a few non-taggers remain, or when all the equipment has been "taken" to the "home" area.
