Warm up Dribbling Pinball.
All but 3 students start with a bowling pin. They may place their pin anywhere inside basketball boundary lines. They guard their pin while trying to knock down other pins. They knock down other pins by foot dribbling a soft foam ball up to another person’s pin. If their pin gets knocked down, they pick their pin up, run it to the first person in line (three people who did not start the game with a pin). In our gym this line is right next to the drinking fountain so they get a drink while they are waiting. They are usually only waiting about 20 seconds.
