Zig zag tee ball: a quality game.
MetadataShow full item record
Zig-Zag Tee Ball is a quality hybrid game that I have used when teaching in primary schools. It is one of my all-time favourites kept in my bag of tricks. Like many games there may be different versions and names associated with Zig-Zag Tee Ball, so chances are that you may already know a similar game perhaps under another name. Zig-Zag Tee Ball is categorised as a modified striking/fielding game and reinforces fundamental motor skills of striking, trapping and throwing. I would like to share this game with you so that you may also enjoy with children.While it is suitable for children in middle to upper primary school, it is possible to play with even younger children if modified and depending on their experience and ability. This game was implemented with success in various school contexts and can enable ‘Quality Health and Physical Education’. It would be hoped that children by the time they have reached Year 3 (approaching 8 years of age) have had plentiful opportunities to develop fundamental motor skills. However, if they have not had the opportunity then you could possibly develop their skills, mindful that they may require extra time before they play this game.
