This simple and entertaining activity will have your students feeling excited and engaged. Using the OMNIKIN® ball to try and tag the boulder runner will encourage students to use teamwork and group strategy. Check out the quick set up and easy instructions for Boulder Runner.
OMNIKIN® Boulder Runner SPARK PE Class Activity
To begin, arrange students to form one larger outer circle and a smaller inner circle. Have the students in the larger circle face and the center and the inner circle students face out. There should be enough space between the two circles for the OMNIKIN® ball.
Students will be passing the OMNIKIN® ball down the pathway and around the circle. Challenge students to work together to find the fastest way to pass the pall around the circle and see how many times it can travel around in one minute.
Once students are comfortable passing the ball quickly, choose a volunteer to become the boulder runner. Their goal will be to outrun the ball. Both the runner and the ball can change directions at any time, and once the boulder runner is tagged by the ball, they choose another player to run.
- 1 OMNIKIN® ball (33-72”)
- Music and player (optional)
