Name of Activity:
Purpose of Activity:To improve student accuracy when participating in archery.
Prerequisites:Basic archery skills that have been taught previously and safely.
Suggested Grade Level:9-12
Archery equipment (bows, arrows, targets).
Real playing cards or teacher designed playing cards (these may be larger than the actual size of a normal deck of playing cards).
Each group will have a sheet with example poker hands ranked highest scoring (royal flush) to lowest scoring (high card) to use as a reference.
Description of Idea
The instructor will attach the playing cards to the archery targets. The students will be challenged to create poker hands listed on the reference sheet, while shooting a round of 5 arrows. The scores may go in any order to be counted as a hand.
A second challenge may have the teacher designating the order, such as Round 1 only 3 of A Kind,or in Round 2 only 2 Pairs will be counted. The teacher might build on this for additional rounds.
Additionally a third challenge might be to allow the students to compete with each other, to create the best 5-card hand using 5 shots.
