# Kindergarten Steal The Treasure Lesson Plan Example (Physical Education)

## Topic: Steal the Treasure

### Objectives & Outcomes

• Students will be able to understand the rules and concepts of the game of "Steal the Treasure."

### Materials

• A treasure (such as a box filled with small toys)
• A large open space for running
• Markers and paper for making clues

### Warm-up

• Begin the lesson by asking the students if they have ever played a game called "Tag." If they have, ask them to explain the rules to the class. If they have not, explain the basic concept of the game and how players try to "tag" or touch another player without being tagged themselves.
• Next, introduce the game of "Steal the Treasure" and explain that it is similar to "Tag" except instead of tagging players, players need to steal the treasure from each other.

### Direct Instruction

• Review the rules of the game with the students:
• Players are divided into two teams, with one team hiding the treasure and the other team trying to find the treasure.
• Players must not touch or tag the other players, but must instead try to steal the treasure from them.
• Explain any additional rules specific to the game, such as how many players can be on a team, how long the game lasts, or any restrictions on where the treasure can be hidden.

### Guided Practice

• Having the students divide into teams, have a leader or teacher hide the treasure while the other students stay in the center of the playing area.
• Then, have the students on the finding team work together to try to find the treasure, using the clues provided by the leader or teacher.
• As the students are playing, the teacher can circulate and provide support as needed.

### Independent Practice

• After the students have had a chance to try to find the treasure, have them work in pairs to create their own adventure game.
• Have them draw a map of the playing area, and then create clues and a hidden treasure for their teammates to find.
• Encourage them to be creative and have fun with it!

### Closure

• Once the students have finished their adventure games, have them share their maps with the class and talk about how they created their clues and the hidden treasure.
• Ask the students to reflect on what they learned about listening and teamwork during the activity.

### Assessment

• Observe the students during the independent practice activity and take note of their ability to create clear and detailed clues.
• Collect the students' finished adventure games and review them to assess their ability to create a realistic and detailed map.
