Recreational Games for Physical Education
Hume, Donald
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v18 n3 p27-30 Jan-Feb 2005
Recreational games can be incorporated into physical education programs to encourage play and activity among students during their leisure time. Students can play their own games during recess, before or after school, during intramural programs, or in their neighborhood with family and friends. This article describes five such games namely: slapball, spongeball, stoopball, Chinese handball, and five-boxes. These games are readily adaptable to a variety of playing areas, easy for students to learn and play on their own after initial instruction and practice, and require minimal equipment. (Contains 6 figures.)
