Lord of the Rings

State Standard: 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5

Equipment: Several Deck Rings Pins, Noodles (tagging), 5 cones, & 6 Mats

Grade: K-5

Purpose of Event: Cardiovascular, Running, Movement in General Space.

Time: 15-20 minutes


Put 5 folded mats side-by-side on one side of the gym. Next, spread out several deck rings on the mats. Put 5 Cones on the other side of the gym in a relay style formation. Lastly, put one mat in the middle of the gym.


This is a timed game; I usually go about 2-3 minutes. Students (Hobbits) will line up behind the 5 cones in a relay style formation. I usually put only 5 students in each line. The rest of the students are the are the taggers (orcs) their job is to prevent the students (Hobbits) in the line from stealing the deck rings (lord of the rings) from the mats. If student (s) gets tagged by an “Orc” they must sit on the mat in the middle of the gym because they have been captured by the “Orcs.”
