Sharpen Math Skills in PE and at Home

Fun Activities For Kids of All Ages
Here are a few ideas I have started to incorporate in physical education classes to help increase students math skills that you can also do at home.
Objective: to catch the foxtail by the tail to the total of exactly 21 points.
Points are awarded by where the student catches the foxtail.
- 5 points=end of tail (the hardest catch)
- 3 points=middle of the tail
- 1 point=ball or the start of the tail.
#2- Drop 21
Objective: to catch a small bouncy ball in the LEAST amount of drops to 21 points.
Drop the ball from shoulder height allowing it to bounce 2-3-4 times then try to catch it. From the caught number, continue to drop and catch. To be successful, you must catch a drop at exactly 21 points.
