FANTASY    BASKETBALL

Grade:2
Content Area: Basketball skills
Primary Focus: Skills practice, student involvement
Equipment: basketballs

Activity: 
         1. Divide the students into 4 teams.
         2. Divide the gymnasium into 2 courts.
         3. 2 games are now played side by side.
         4. Thers are only 2 rules in the game;
              a) You may not foul(touch) another player.
              b) You may not take the ball out of the hands of
                 or cause them to lose the ball by knocking it
                 out of their hands while dribbling.
         5. The kids play 3 mini games(a round robin tournament).
         6. Your more athletic kids will play by the "regualar"rules.
            What I like most is that the "non-athletic" kids will
            feel like they are really playing without hearing a whistle
            blow every time they touch the ball.
