Grade Level: 6-8
Students are placed in groups of three, with one player becoming the thrower, one player the hoop holder, and one being the catcher. Throwers try to throw the Frisbee through the hoop, while the catcher catches it. Players may stand as close to each other as they wish, but if they miss they must begin again. The object is to get your team all the way across the field without missing. An extension of this task would be for the holder and the catcher to be moving while the thrower is throwing the frisbee, if space permits. This will increase the difficulty of the task so students will be excited about throwing the frisbee.
