Your students are sure to love these introductory basketball games! Each set features multiple game and court setup options, allowing you to customize the set to your class’s size and skill. Players start in their team’s Huddle Area with their BasketBag in hand, and race to make baskets from Shot Spots. They will become so caught up in the action they won’t notice that these basketball games for elementary students blend in math practice!
Make Math Active
BasketBag Beanbag Toss includes original beginner basketball games, each of which combines elements of math with activity for the whole class.
The game First to 30 puts an emphasis on addition as each team keeps track of its own points. Divide your class into 2-4 equal teams. On the signal, a player from each team picks up 1 BasketBag from his/her assigned pile, races to a shot spot of his/her choice, and shoots toward a goal. If the player makes the shot, the team earns the number of points designated by the spot. If the player misses, he/she collects the bag and runs a lap before returning to the huddle. The next player goes after the player before him/her takes a shot. The first team to 30 points wins.
Other games focus on subtraction or getting the most points in an allotted time.
The goals stay open and upright for ultra-convenient access and fold up in seconds to make storage and transportation easy. They are made of polyester mesh with a canvas bottom for greater durability, so they can last for years of play. Internal steel wire reinforcement offers even greater strength.
The circular beanbags measure 4-1/2” dia. They are lightweight, and feature basketball graphics.
Each set contains everything you need for all game options: 10 numbered vinyl spots (numbered 1-10), 3 goals, 60 beanbags, four 9”H orange plastic cones, three 4 lb sandbells, and activity instructions.
