Develops reaction time and speed
Fun and engaging
Great for a warm up
Works best on basketball court
None (Cones if no basketball lines available)
Students in pairs and line up opposite each other at the half way line - 1 metre apart
One line are the 'rats' (blue) one are the 'rabbits' (red)
The teacher shouts "rats" or "rabbits" and then these students turn and run to the end line while the other partner tries to catch them
Eg: "Rats" = blue students turn and run while red partner tries to catch them
If the runner gets to the end line, they get 1 point. If the catcher touches the runner before the end line, they get one point
Easier = start further, shorter running distance
Harder = start closer, longer running distance, switch names (Rats = Rabbits etc)
Give it a go this week and stay tuned for next week's PE idea.
