Football Review Game

Football Review Game from www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

Green and Brown Construction Paper

Regular Craft Sticks

Clay

White Colored Pencil

White Posca Paint Marker

Straight Edge Ruler

 

 

 

Preparation:

1. Before class prepare two goal posts. Glue two regular-sized crafts together to make a capitol T shape. Then glue two mini craft sticks to the ends of the top of the T-shape to make the goal posts. Roll a gob of clay into a ball and then flatten the bottom on a table. Poke the goal post into the clay so it stands up.

2. Prepare a football field by drawing lines on 12" green construction paper 2 inches apart. Glue the two pieces together so that the end of one sheet overlaps two inches. Add a 2" endzone to the short side by cutting a 2 1/2" strip of paper to tape to the end of the paper.

3. Prepare paper footballs or have your students make their own. Fold a sheet of brown constrution paper in half lenghtwise and cut it in half along the fold. Fold the half sheets in half again lengthwise. Use one folded length to make one football. Start by folding one end so that one corner meets the other side forming a triangle. (See below.) Keep folding the same way until you come to the end of the length of the paper. Unfold the last fold and cut the corner off the end so that you can tuck it into the already folded paper. Use a white colored pencil or white Posca Paint Marker to draw the laces on the football.

4. Prepare review questions. Make a list of hard questions and another list of easier questions.

How to Play:

1. Teams take turns answering questions to move the football up and down the field.

2. The offensive team gets to decide whether they want to answer a hard question to go ten yards or two easy questions to move five yards each time. The offensive team keeps answering questions, moving down the field until they miss a question. When the team takes the ball they answers questions until they miss a question. If the team is answering five-yard questions, move the ball half way between the yard lines. If the team is answering hard questions move the ball onto the next yard line. Note: You may want to add a time limit on answering the questions.

3. When a team manages to get the ball to the end zone the team scores two points and then gets to kick the ball to earn another point if it goes through the goal post. To kick the ball the player places one point of the ball on the table and holds it up by placing his index finger on the ther point. He then uses his other hand to flick the football towards the goal post.

Football Review Game

 

What you will need:

Green and Brown Construction Paper, White Colored Pencil, White Posca Paint Marker, and a Straight Edge Ruler

 

Preparation:

1. Prepare football fields by taping sheets of green construction paper together to make long sheets that are the length of the your table. Draw yard lines on the "football fields" with a white colored pencil. Draw one in the center and then five lines on each side of the center leaving an end zone that is four inches wide on each side. Make one football field for every two children. Tape the "football fields" to your table.

3. Prepare paper footballs or have your students make their own. Fold a sheet of brown constrution paper in half lenghtwise and cut it in half along the fold. Fold the half sheets in half again lengthwise. Use one folded length to make one football. Start by folding one end so that one corner meets the other side forming a triangle. (See above.) Keep folding the same way until you come to the end of the length of the paper. Unfold the last fold and cut the corner off the end so that you can tuck it into the already folded paper. Use a white colored pencil or white Posca Paint Marker to draw the laces on the football.

4. Prepare review questions. Write the question on one side of a piece of cardstock and the answer on the other. Make one set for every two players.

 

How to Play:

1. Place the football fields across the table so that you have one student on each end of the football fields opposite each other.

2. Place the questions in a pile next to the playing fields so that the questions are face up.

3. Children take turns pushing the football towards their end zone after answering a question correctly trying to get the football to land in the end zone without knocking off the table. If the ball falls off the table, the opposite team gets to try to "kick" the ball through the goal post to score a point. Children form goal posts with their hands spreading their thumbs out so that they touch each other while their other fingers are straight up forming a "U" shape. Then the opposite team takes the football and tries to pushing it towards their end zone without kocking it off the table.

4. When a team manages to get the ball to the end zone the team scores two points and then gets to kick the ball to earn another point if it goes through the goal post.

5. If a team answers a question wrong, the other team takes a turn trying to push the ball to their end zone.
