Grade Level: K-2, 3-5

Place poly spots all over the floor and identify them as gold nuggets. Create partners and give each pair one ball to throw. Variation 1: throwing emphasis. The “miner” in the pair is focusing on their parter’s throwing form. The pair can only mine the gold if they step with their opposite foot. If the ball with thrown with opposition, the miner collects the gold and the thrower gets the ball. Variation 2: catching emphasis. The “miner” stands on the poly spot and if they catch the ball then the pair can collect the gold.
