About this title


The challenges of school can be stressful for children. That's why games are an important part of each school day. They're an excellent way to help students “chill out”—that is, when the games are chosen and taught well. Co-Ed Recreational Games provides you with more than 200 fun games that help students drop their inhibitions, put aside their worries, and just play!

This easy-to-use book features games that accommodate students of all ages and skill levels so that everyone can enjoy participating. They help students get acquainted, foster camaraderie and cooperation, and maximize time spent being physically active. Developed by a physical education teacher with more than 20 years of experience, the games run the gamut from icebreakers and traditional games to familiar games with a unique twist, like “scooter basketball.”

The format of the book makes the games easy to present for new or veteran teachers. Each game comes with a consistent guide to implementation that includes the following:

-Number of participants

-Age level

-Recommended equipment


-How to play

-Safety considerations

-Tips for teaching and organizing the games

A handy Game Finder grid enables you to quickly locate and select appropriate games based on the number and ages of participants and the facility and equipment available. You'll also find a Game Generator that walks you step by step through the process of creating entirely new games on your own.

Co-Ed Recreational Games can help you turn your class into the most enjoyable part of the day by creating a fun environment where kids can forget about the tensions of school.
