Fessenden just finished our 1st time Frisbee golf unit at this school. Thanks to Fuel Up to Play 60 we were able to purchase Frisbees for the K-2 groups and 3-5 groups. Student learned to play the game and also learned that over spring break they could also play this with their families. They learned that our county has Frisbee golf courses set up at the parks and that the student could actually make their own course at home. Our students were really excited and with spring break right around the corner they have something new to keep them active.

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

I can use this as a individual and dual activity. It can be used inside the gym or out on the field. Students can use this outside of the school day and on weekends.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Since this was the first time for this school to see this unit - I had several of our adult team want to come out and join the kids playing and recording their score. We played 9 holes of Frisbee golf and awarded the lowest scores with their own Frisbee to take home and play with.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Our students were not used to actually having to be responsible during their PE time. When they got to the scoring part of Frisbee golf they were a bit taken aback. Fortunately, some of our Fuel Up to Play 60 student leaders picked up quickly and helped the other students.
