1, 3, 5 Stay Alive

Subject Area

Physical Education




In this activity, students are put into small groups (4 or 5). One group is in the "field," while the other group is "up-to-bat." Three cones are placed 15-20 feet apart, in line with home base. Once the kicker on the team "up-to-bat" kicks the ball, they will run to one of the three cones and back to home base. The points awarded for each cone, 1, 3, and 5, are placed closest to farthest away. In this manner, the player who kicks the ball, either by place-kicking or punting, will run to the chosen cone and try to beat the other team's players back to home base or beat the throw back to home base before the other team gets the ball there. The kicker scores the point if they can beat the ball back to home base. 

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
