Scooter Games for Physical Education Class

I had a very FUN week with the students!  We recently finished up our Jump Rope unit and will begin our Volleyball unit (3rd-5th) and Tumbling (K-2) next week.  Between units I like to dedicate one week for what I call "fun fitness games".  Fun fitness games are games that are 1)FUN, 2) teach a skill, and 3) help the students become more fit.
Agenda for this week

For all of my P.E. teacher friends out there....I discovered a great new resource!  Check out Benjamin Pirillo on youtube!  This is where I discovered the "Spaghetti and Meatball" scooter game. 

Below are the activities we did this week:

1)  New Warm-Up for February - Jump Jog and Stretch
2)  Skill - How to ride a scooter SAFELY
3)  Scooter Games - Spaghetti and Meatballs
4)  Scooter Game  - Tow Truck (My 3rd graders were the only classes who had time to learn this- see picture below.  The "tow truck" had to stay in front of the "car" and walk.  If car went in front of the truck, they had to do 10 exercises.)

Check out pictures and videos below of these activities!

This is how we "park" the scooters
This is where students stand if they get tagged in our scooter game.  Usually takes 30 seconds to get back in!

  1. how do you play tow truck scooter game?

  2. My rules for tow truck were the "tow truck" person had to WALK while they pull the car (person riding on the scooter). Also, the car had to stay BEHIND the tow truck, just like a real tow truck pulls a car. If the students broke any of those safety rules, they both had to stop and do 10 push-ups, then re-enter the game. I used a braided jump rope as the tow rope and we folded them in half so they were not too long. The students had a blast and I would definitely play this game again!

  3. Can you explain the set up a little more please?
