Find The Gnome Overview
I’m not going to lie, I’m super excited to share this new Valentine’s Day PE Game called Find The Gnome.
I’ve seen a lot of virtual PE games set up like this, but I’ve never seen any that show the objects actually moving on the screen.
When creating this game, I imagined it like the old army/carnival game of 3 shells and a pea or 3 cups and a ball. I wanted to take that same idea and create different levels using a Valentine’s Day theme.
I spent a lot of time over Christmas break trying to figure out how to make this happen and after a couple of hours and maybe a headache or two, I had figured out a pretty good system. 😄
If you’re still teaching virtual and looking for game ideas, you can find my entire collection of Virtual Winter PE Games here:
How To Play
-Start by bringing up the video (which can be found below) or you can search for it on Youtube
– Students will watch the video and try to track the gnome as it moves and hides behind the hearts throughout the round
– At the end of the round, students will try to guess which heart the gnome is hiding behind by performing the exercise, yoga pose, or dance associated with that heart
-There are 3 different levels in the game
-Each level will progressively get harder (more hearts to hide behind, more movements, etc.)
-Have fun and do your best!
-A bonus option is to have students keep track of their score and earn one point for each correct answer
