This activity requires a little set-up but incorporates a variety of fitness tasks and optional challenges to keep students engaged and moving. Use the Skillastics® game mats to encourage students to find unique ways to stay active, and to highlight the importance of cooperation and teamwork.
Fitness Skillastics® SPARK PE Class Activity
To begin, create a 20×20 paces activity area with a large Skillastics® mat, game pieces, and dice in the center. Place one small skillastics mat and a colored spot marker around the perimeter for every team of 3-5 students. Assign a team to each small mat and have the teams number themselves 1-5.
On your signal, the number 1 player from each team runs to the large center mat and rolls their die, then moves their piece on the big board. They then relay the instructions for the activity the whole group completes the activity for the assigned number of repetitions. Once complete, the number 2 player goes up to roll the die and move the team’s piece on the board. The team continues to roll, move their piece, and complete fitness tasks until you signal for the game to end.

- 4 cones to create boundaries
- 1 large Skillastics® mat
