Thank-you to everyone who attended our session and visited our booth during the National P.E. Conference in Winnipeg during the last weekend in October! The response to pegames.org, our session and our books was absolutely incredible! Laying out our fitness/game-centric model for P.E., one that focuses on keeping the most kids active for the most amount of time possible, was instrumental to our success at the National Conference. Our session was 2 hours of fast, fun, inclusive games that had just shy of 100 people playing, learning and laughing along with us. At our booth, book sales were fast and furious, especially with the launch of our second book of 100 Games (soon to be released in eBook and hardcopy format online)! All of the comments we received from both current and new pegamers alike were overwhelmingly positive, and the feedback we received from both book buyers, as well as the individuals in our session, was to keep on creating quality, fun, fitness-based games that keep our kids active!
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.
