NAME OF ACTIVITY: Giant Marbles
GRADE LEVEL: K-12 (with adaptations)
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: 3 or 4 beach balls or other very lightweight balls. Several soft nerf, flease, or other soft throwable.
HIGHLIGHTS: Throwing, teamwork, cooperations, tossing or throwing at a stationary target.
Create a large circle for the marble ring (size will depend on the age
and skill of your students. Inside the circle, place 3 or 4 poly
spots, carpet squares or other similar item and the 3 or four beach
balls. The soft throwables will be distributed on the outside of
the ring. On the signal, the team will try to hit the partially
deflated beachballs with their soft throwable. The object is to
get the beach balls onto the poly spot on carpet square in as short of
time as possible.
HELPFUL HINTS: This game can be adapted for various skills by changing: the size of the circle, the size of the target area, the number of targets or the number of deflated balls.
