Why Lesson Planet?
Learners review a number of games that can be played during recess. Working in small groups, they play Horse, 4-Square, 2 on 2 Volleyball, and Jump Rope Rhymes in one set of activities. Next, they play Around the World, Single Jump Ropes, Pickle (or Monkey in the Middle), and Freeze Tag. After they play, they discuss why it is important not to fight about close calls.
