PURPOSE

The object is to work with your team mates to push the beachball (meteorite) over the net, into another teams zone (planet).

HOW IT WORKS


Split class into four even groups.

The aim is to work with your team mates to push the beachball (meteorite) over the net, in to another teams zone (planet).

If the beachball hits the floor in your zone (planet) then the coach/teacher throws a marker (comet) into your area (frisbee style), if you catch it you put it back in the coach pile, if it hits the floor you place it in your teams hula hoop (space station)

The team with the least amount of markers (comets) in their space station is the winner

MODIFY IT


After a lost point, students collect a marker (comet) from the coach pile and place it in the teams space station.

Set a hit limit to get the ball over the net.

Add another beachball (meteorite).

ASK STUDENTS


How can you work cooperatively with your team to play effectively?
