I applied for the NFL Flag Football Kit and was approved this year, so we've been using the flags during a 6 week unit in PE. I used the curriculum provided to practice passing, catching, dodging and defensive skills with the drills suggested. We ended the unit with a Flag Football night sponsored by our PTA. Over 70 students and their parents participated in the event. We had a volunteer line the fields, so we had a total of 4 small flag football fields for all the teams to play.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

I'm making the Flag Football belts available during recess for the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to check out throughout the year. Now that they all know the rules and how to play, they've been successful at playing at recess with the teachers overseeing the games.
