A fun activity to practice speed and reaction time!
Line up students on centre line of basketball/netball court
The closest 1/3rd line is called 'shore'
The middle line is called 'ship'
The other 1/3rd line is called 'shark'
The teacher calls out 'ship,' 'shore' or 'shark'
Students have to run to that line and back to the centre line ('Ship')
Don't be the last one!
If the teacher calls out 'Ship' and both feet leave that line, they are considered out
Make it easier:
Change the names of the lines so they sound different
Play elimination whereby the last one back to centre is out OR
Add a consequence for being the last one back, such as pushups, sit ups etc
