12 learning activities for any substitute to use (even if they aren't a PE sub!). Most activities have little to no equipment for safety. I just recently had to take 8 weeks for total knee replacement surgery, so I know the feeling of preparing for substitute. No worries, I have the planning done for you.
- 12 learning activities that involve little or no equipment, for safety, that are fun, active for your students. These are my students favorite activities!
- Bonus - a checklist of other important specific information, that is site specific to you, that your substitute would find useful.
Activities such as:
- Hot Dog Tag
- Partner 8 Pin
- Lay Down Tag
- Everyone's It
- Dead Ant Tag
- Bee Hive Tag
- 8 more activities
Let us get fit and be social! Ditch the app, let us play in a more active, social way. My students loved this game and keep asking to play! Can you tell who the Imposter is?
This resource gives teachers video instructions and students colorful, fun, themed Google Slides game interface. Many videos describes how to set up and use various Zoom settings to play the game. I go into a lot of detail for Zoom but if you are familiar with Google Meets you could use the Google Slides Presentation and play it on that platform too.
Students must show cooperation and teamwork to find the Imposter.
