PE in a Box or Table Top PE Games

Students enjoy PE even when sick or injured.  Over the years I have created PE in A Box lessons.  These games are easy to set.  I have placed each individual game with direction in a zip lock bag. Pick Up Sticks, Chinese Jump Rope, Hounds and The Fox, Table Top Football, Play-Doh Flexology, and Sumo Show Down are a few of the games included in my grab bag box.  PE in a Box also comes in handy when the gymnasium is being used and outside is not an option.  

Here is a link to my PE in a Box lessons.  You will also find resource pages and links to where I obtained some of the games.

Plato's Thoughts on Mind and Body

“In order for man to succeed in life, God provided him with two means, education and physical activity. Not separately, one for the soul and the other for the body, but for the two together. With these means, man can attain perfection.” -Plato
