Name of Activity:

Ghostbusters Field Day

Purpose of Activity:

To celebrate the end of the year while reviewing the skills we learned throughout the year.

Suggested Grade Level:


Materials Needed:

Equipment is listed in the description of stations handout. Music player with Ghostbusters theme song and other types of music, water, and first-aid kit.

Description of Idea

Grades will have classes split up to compete at each station. If a grade has a small number, then they will compete as one group. There will be two volunteers at each station, along with the classroom teacher. There will be two volunteers at the water table to help out. Students will be at the station for 12 minutes. If they finish early, they will go back through the station. When students hear the Ghostbusters song, they will rotate to the next station. The volunteers at the station will guide the class where to go next for the rotation. Classes will have a rotation map.

The Field Day has 10 stations. Each station relates to a scene from one of the Ghostbusters movies. Feel free to change and adapt to meet your needs.

Teaching Suggestions:

Share your outline of stations with your volunteers and the classroom teachers weeks in advance so they know exactly what you are planning for the day.
