Post Fun games to play in the gym
If anyone has any suggestions for fabulous games to play with 4th, 5th, and 6th graders (all together) in the gym, I would appreciate any and all suggestions!
I've essentially been given a 45-minute period to go out with a bang. Any marvelous ideas?

Marvelous or not, here are a couple of ideas that can work :D

Gym Garbage Game: In this game, you need to use objects that can be thrown around and which will not hurt people (e.g. cushions). Have two equal teams with a line in the center. Give each team the same number of items to begin with. When the whistle blows, each team member of both teams throws whatever they can get their hands on from their side of line to the other side. The throwing continues until there's another whistle as the stop signal. The team with the least amount of garbage on its side wins!

Lighthouse among the ships: The tallest child in the group is assigned with the task of becoming the lighthouse in this game. A quarter of the remaining players become scattered rocks within a bounded area while the other become ships and boats of various sizes. The boats and ships blindly navigate their way (with their eyes closed) about, in order to reach the lighthouse. If one of them bumps into a rock, the said boat becomes an extension of the existing rock and makes the noise 'swish' (like water lapping against a rock). The lighthouse all the while constantly goes 'beep beep beep' to guide the ships and boats towards itself.
