State P.E. Conference in Montana

PEGAMES.ORG had a wonderful time at the MTAHPERD (Montana Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance) State Conference held in Helena, Montana on August 4th-5th. Not only did Linda and her wonderful MTAHPERD colleagues treat us like gold, but we also had several great sessions and boatloads of incredible feedback!

Elementary PE Games

 

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.

As a Grade 7 teacher, it can be challenging to keep warm-up games and Daily Physical Activities fresh and new.Having participated in a number of these games, I feel I’ll be able to provide greater variety to my students this year and beyond.

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.
