Name of Activity:
Purpose of Activity:To start your class off with a fun invigorating activity that is linked to a holiday theme.
Suggested Grade Level:1-2
Materials Needed:2 Orange Balls (Small basketballs)
Description of Idea
Chose 2 students to be pumpkins. They hold the two basketballs. Chose another person to be the witch (Tagger). All of the other students are trick or treaters. The trick or treaters will move around the gym performing various locomotor movements (walking, skipping, hopping, etc.) The witch will move on a broomstick (galloping with two hands on one another in front of them). If the witch tags a trick or treater they turn into a ghost and must stay where they are and move like a ghost (sway). The pumpkins, also performing locomotor movements must move around and untag the ghosts so they can become trick or treaters again. Change roles after 2 minutes of play.
For extra fun I like to play halloween music in the background.
