This lesson plan and diagram is for a large group physical education class game called "Down on the Farm". It is a throwing, catching, blocking, defending and rolling game. This game is targeted to Kindergarten to 5th grade. Framers attempt to "capture" the other farmers equipment, livestock and food. Survival depends upon the farmers getting what they need. 

The kids really enjoy this game and they will leave the gym with smiles on their faces and will be asking you if they really have to leave. The game requires some cones, boxes, a couple rubber pigs or chickens, some whiffle balls, a few basketball goals, bowling pins and a few hula hoops. You will also need some soft type balls like nerf , gator skin, and yarn balls.
