-Fundamental Movement Skills:

  • Locomotor

    • Dodge

    • Run

-Equipment List:

  • Two gymnastic mats

  • Two bean bags

-Equipment Link:

-Setting Up:

  • Place two gymnastic mats on end with about a one-step space between them.

  • Place a bean bag approximately 2-4 paces away from the ends of the mats.

  • One player stands behind each mat.

  • Determine which player is trying to get a bean bag and which player is trying to tag that player.


  • The player can use dodging and deception to have the defending player move out of position so that the offensive player can pick up the bean bag without being tagged.

  • At any point either player may also move between the mats if that is possible.

  • No tagging across a mat.

  • If a player is tagged switch roles (or after three successful bean bag pickups).


-Questions & Notes:

  • Questions for understanding:

    • How does an offensive player use deception effectively?​

    • How does a defensive player not get fooled by deception?

  • Thanks to Glenn Young for this great idea.​
