Description of Idea
This is a new twist on the already published Passport to American Field Day idea already published on PE Central.
This field day focuses on the World and is called Passport to the World Field Day. The students will be visiting different countries where they will be engaged in physically active educational activities representing the diverse cultures of a multitude of countries enabling students to find a connection with their ancestral origin. The students not only will be learning fun facts about the country, they also will be learning how the country is governed. Each class will have their own World Passport, which will be stamped with a star sticker at each country station they are visiting from the “station leader” e.g. President, Chancellor, Prime Minister.
Each station will have a “President/Prime Minister” manager who will explain and run the station. The manager will have a clipboard, which will hold the stamps and the directions to run that Country’s station. When the class has finished the station, the manager will “stamp” their World Passport with a star sticker. The stations will be 10 minutes long. Most of the activities are cooperative in nature so the students should use teamwork.
