K1-G1 Sports Day Activities
Below are the rules & video examples of all activities
Children space out evenly around the parachute and take a handle. The parachute provided has 20 handles so there should be enough room for each class, if there is an extra student or two, just have them grasp the parachute next to a friend.
- Practice lifting the parachute on the count of three, by raising their arms in the air. When the parachute is open call a fruit, e.g. “apples.” Those children will then run under the chute to the other side and grab a different handle . Two fruits can also be called simultaneously.
- When the chute is raised, call “mushroom.” The children step under the chute and sit on the inside edge trying to keep all the air inside the chute.
- Place one or two balls on the chute. Children shake the chute in an effort to get the balls to go down the hole in the middle of the chute.
