Title – Ultimate Frisbee
By – Walter Clonts
Primary Subject – Health / Physical Education
Grade Level – 6-8
This game is great for rainy days in the gym.
Objective: Students try to advance the Frisbee past the end line of the basketball court by throwing it to their teammates.
Start with two teams (approximately 12 on a team) at either end of the gymnasium. The team members will throw the Frisbee to their team members with the goal of getting the Frisbee down the court and across the baseline of the gym. As the game advances, team members will scatter all over the floor (some will stay back to guard their goal, and some will be on the offense trying to make goals). Each time the Frisbee crosses the baseline (the Frisbee has to be thrown across the baseline to score) the scoring team gets one point. The person throwing the Frisbee cannot be guarded, but the rest of his teammates can.
If the Frisbee is dropped, the defense gets to take over possession.
Advantage of this lesson plan is that students are constantly involved and active participants.
You can set time limits on how long one team has to keep possession of the Frisbee (example 3 seconds or 5 seconds).
