Physical Education Games – Corner Ball


This is ‘Corner Ball’ and it is a soccer based game. I would like to thank Stacey from Manchester for this idea. This is for grades 2 to 8. You will need a soccer
ball and benches to play. You will start with the benches in each corner and you will flip them so that the flat surface is the goal area. Then create even teams. The teams will actually
crouch down behind their bench or stand behind their bench. You will number off the players on
the teams (there are teams of five here) so each
player would be a number one, two, three, four, or five. If there are extra players (for example, six players on a team) then one of the players can be
number one and six. So they have a number. Now you will place a ball in the middle or you could also have the teacher hold the ball on the side and throw it into play as the teacher calls the number. In the example, the number four was called out, so all of the
number fours will jump into the playing area and they will do a one-on-one-on-one-on-one until someone scores. So here the red team scored on the yellow. So the red team gets a point. And you can add a rule where the
other three teams have to do some jumping jacks or something because they
didn’t get the goal. Then it all resets so the players are all back and you call out another number. You could also call out 2 numbers at the same time so two players from each team jump out into the playing area. The game continues on like that. That is it for this idea!
