Field day is finally here and it doesn’t look anything like I imagined it would when I started rough drafting ideas back in February.
I liked the idea of OPEN’s national field day and included one of their games, but we typically hold ours at the end of May so I thought it was a little early for us. I also like being different and being able to create my own resources. 😎
When planning our field day I had 2 major things in mind:
-Make it for families:
Covid-19 has put a lot of stress on everyone and I wanted a day where everyone could spend time together, have fun, and relax
-Games with minimal equipment:
I didn’t want anyone to have to go out and buy anything for a game. I tried to list as many alternatives for equipment as I could think of
The Set Up
-Students and families can choose from 20 different games and activities
-Everyone can choose to keep score or just play for fun
Link To Virtual Field Day
This is created in google slides which means you can make any changes that you want
-In order to make changes you have to make your own copy first! Unfortunately, I can’t give you access to my hard copy otherwise it will mess everything up
Video Overview & Additional Help
I tried to make the set up and process as simple as I could.
I know a lot of people are really good with using google slides, but if you want the video overview or need additional help on how to make changes to add in your own games then the following video will be helpful.
I hope this virtual field day can be helpful for you and something that your students will love. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to me and I would love to help!
