Dodge Ball in PE
I believe every student at some point should be able to experience dodge ball. While there is much debate over the game because many believe it does not give the students enough physical activity and it is dangerous. I would try and use dodge ball in the classroom but change a few things around. First there would be three cones on either baseline with balls in the top, in order for a team to win the game those balls need to be knocked off. When a student got out they would go to a designated zone for their team and perform a set of exercises like sit ups, jumping jacks, or walking a low beam without falling off. When the student finished these exercises they are able to enter back into the game to help their teammates. This game would use NYS learning standards: 1A, 2b and NASPE standards: 2 and 6.
