Duster Hockey

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Amanda Selmes

In the hall / gym, split the children into two groups then number them. For example if there are 20 students in the class split them into groups of ten then number each student from 1-10.

Have them sit on opposites sides of the hall / gym, then call out a number i.e. 3

Both number threes will get up and run to the middle of the hall where a duster (preferable a soft one not one with a hard back) and two newspapers rolled up (the hockey sticks) are waiting. Each child takes a newspaper stick and tries to hit the duster into their goal.

If someone scores another number is called out and the next two will have a go. If no one scores after a few minutes to make sure everyone has a go call out another number and the ones playing must drop their "sticks" where they are and the next students have a go.

This can also be played in pairs when the teacher calls out two numbers etc.
