Trick or Treat Relay - Halloween Game for P.E. class!

This week I did the "Trick or Treat Relay" with my classes as an activity at the end of class.  They all loved it!  This is a great game for all elementary age groups.  With K-2nd grade I always begin by first making sure they all understand what a relay means (taking turns doing something....being on a team, etc).  I also give points on my Squad Chart (see Rainbow Squad Chart) to teams who are following directions, listening, etc.  When a squad gets 10 points, I give them a small prize like a sticker or eraser.  We use squads for many other things in PE.....more on that later.

Click here for a printable direction page for the Trick or Treat Relay!  Please remember to make teams small, no more than four students so they are not waiting in line very long.  We want our students moving and exercising as much as possible during P.E. class!

Fitness Test Certificates for P.E.

Do you do fitness testing with your P.E. classes?  If so, check out my "store" on teacherspayteachers.com.  I have many certificates for the mile run, sit-ups, push-ups, sit and reach, and the shuttle run.  I also have improvement awards and certificates for other skills.

Squad or Team Chart for PE class

Fellow PE teachers - here is a document I created to keep track of squad spots and/or teams.  I used the colors of the rainbow to organize groups of 5.  Just fill in student's names in the boxes!  Here is the link - Rainbow Squad Chart.

Hope everyone's year is off to a great start!
