Hi, and welcome to pegames.org. This site is dedicated to keeping kids active and engaged during physical activity, whether it is in the gym, outside or in the classroom. In this, the day and age of video games, Iphones and the like, it has never been more important, or necessary, to get our kids moving. The key, however, is to make sure that they are always having fun while doing it.
This site is designed specifically for anyone wanting to keep large groups of kids active. With all of our games, our mission is to keep the most amount of kids moving for the most amount of time possible. To this end, we do our very best to outline games with the smallest amount of equipment possible, and also make sure to give straightforward, simple explanations that will have your kids moving as soon as possible.
Every game, warm-up, challenge and activity on this site has been tested by our resident PE specialist. Mr. H. has been teaching physical education at the elementary school level for 7 years, and will make sure that we post only the best of the best.
Educator: Ian Cox
During the average 45 minute block of physical education, students are actually active (i.e. moving around, elevating their heart rates), for approximately 17 minutes (less than half!). With our website, and the hundreds (soon to be thousands, as our updates continue), of activities, warm-ups, games, individual and group challenges…etc. we aim to keep kids moving, moving, moving.
Please feel free to start navigating the site, as there are all sorts of options for physical activity for your students. We are updating daily, so please continue to check back frequently as there will always be something new to keep your kids smiling and active.
At pegames.org we believe in running. Running from, running to, running around, running under, running through…etc. as long as its got running, it’s fun and it’s inclusive, then we’re all for it. The benefits of running, and running consistently, at a target-heart-rate tempo, have long been shown to be many. From improved cognitive ability to positive mood shift, to improved focus, running is one of the secrets to overall physical well-being. At pegames.org, the basis for most of our warm-up and full-length games is running. To make the games inclusive (because not everyone can run at the same speed, for the same amount of time, for the same duration), we try to provide opportunities for every runner, regardless of ability level, to play an active, important and fun part of every game, with a single catch: They must run, as best as they can, to do it!
