Grade Level: K-2

Once your K-2 students can volley and strike their balloon with some control, try applying that skill to a little game called The Shepherd. In this game, 3-5 students are designated as “sheep dogs” that stand in the center of the area. The other players line up on an end line, each with a balloon. They are the shepherds and their balloons are the sheep. The object is to volley their sheep continuously as they walk through the “pasture” without allowing a sheepdog to tap their sheep away.
