A set of novelty event task cards that explain games to play with your class across multiple days.
This resource is a perfect whole-class activity to play in the lead up to or during the Olympics. Use these activities for novelty events at your school’s sports carnivals.
How to Run a Mini-Olympics
Begin by dividing your class into five teams and assigning each team a colour. The students will participate in these teams for the duration of the games.
Hold an opening ceremony, a torch relay (make our Olympic Torch – Craft Activity beforehand) and sing the national anthem.
Display The Mini-Olympics Scoreboard (included in the resource) on a classroom wall.
During your daily P.E. session, hold one of the events and score it on the scoreboard accordingly. Events include:
- Ultimate Skipping Challenge
- The Riverbank
- Bob Ball
- Funky Field Events
- Lava Floor Rescue
Novelty Games for Kids
There are five novelty style games included in this resource as well as a record sheet for the Funky Field Events. Each task card includes:
- a list of the necessary equipment for the event (most of which can be found in the sports shed)
- preparation tips
- rules and instructions for the event.
Promote teamwork and good sportsmanship by rewarding teams who display these qualities with bonus points.
