Grade Level: K-2

Have groups begin with balloons, and set a challenging goal for the number of times that they think they can volley it in succession. Teacher should teach good cues on volleying and what body parts they can use to volley. For example, students can use their hands to volley, or use their forearms, or even their feet. Let the students be creative with how they volley the ball. After they achieve their goal, they can choose another object to repeat the activity. Groups should choose objects in order of difficulty;  easiest to hardest.
