Intended Learning Outcomes:
Students will work and communicate with teammates. They will have to help each other and take appropriate risks in this activity. They will gain skill development practice in many areas.
- Set-up the mats in a baseball type area.
- Players in the outfield can be anywhere not impeding an opposing player.
- One player kicks at a time.
- The ball is rolled and the player kicks it.
Anything besides a bunt is fair game. Sideways, forwards, backwards or even
off the walls is fair.
- The player runs to first etc.
- The kicker is "out" when the ball is caught or when they are tagged
with the ball while running toward a base or if the ball is thrown ahead of
them to first base.

not have to run to second base, they may stay on the base as long as they
wish, until they think it is safe to advance. The large mat will fit quite
