Fun Parachute & Obstacle Course Games

Fun Parachute & Obstacle Course Games
By Dr. Britt

Introduction
Each month, I will submit two new activities to do with your children, students, or neighbors.  These activities will all revolve around the seven fundamental physical skills, which include balance, general coordination, body image, hand-eye coordination, laterality, tactile touch and language.  The activities are also meant to use very little or no equipment.  Enjoy the activities.

 

Parachute

Skill 
General coordination 
Objectives
Students will use the parachute to move in different patterns and speeds
Materials
A large parachute (or bedspread) and balloons or other balls.

Introduction
Students will be explained the rules of the parachute and what will be happening that day                                                                                               

Activity
Students will perform a variety of activities with the parachute.

  • Make the parachute go up, down 
  • Make the balls roll on the parachute 
  • Have the balls go up by pushing the parachute up
  • And other activities.                                                  

Wrap-up
Explain the importance of body image again and why what you did today helped them know where there body was. 

                                                                                  

Over, Under, Around and Through

Skill 
General Coordination

Objectives
Students will perform an obstacle course to use different movement techniques

Materials
No materials needed    

Introduction
Students will be explained the rules of the day and what can and cannot be done in this activity.   They will also be told the difference between under and through.                                                                                                                     

Activity
Students will be asked to go over one thing, under one thing, around one thing and through one thing in that order in several ways.   Forward, backwards, sideways, in slow motion, etc.  See how creative the students can be for what they go over, under, around and through.                                                                                                           

Wrap-up
Finish by giving more ideas of what they could have done.   Also, stress the importance of general coordination to them one last time.
