Before class begins hide beanbags on the playground area. If you have a multi-colored playing area that is terrific. Try to match the colored beanbags with the equipment on the playground. Hide some high, medium and low. Don't burry beanbags and don't place them where students may get hurt retrieving them.
When they find them all you can allow the boys in the class to hide them from the girls and vice versa. Gives all students an opportunity to hide and match beanbags on the playground.
Observe students perform loco/nonlocomotor movements and spatial awareness competence as well as their ability to identify the colors they have found.
Observe how students share, take turns on playground equipment and listen to rules while playing.
