A WebQuest for Middle
School Health and Physical Education
with QCA Science KS3 Unit 9B (Fit and healthy)
Doctors are very worried because young people spend too long in front of the computer, and don't get enough exercise. The games that are played at school are sometimes not much fun for some people, so it's up to you to do something about it. This WebQuest allows you to invent a new game, and you are given almost a free hand to design it in any way you like. There have to be a few "rules" of course, but they are there only to help you - it's not as easy as you might think to create a good new game.
Have fun, be creative and be willing to take a chance. Design a new game using one or more skills from the following list. (Some of them have some very posh titles, but they are only included to impress your teacher. The bits of interest to you are all in this colour.)
Locomotor movement skills
Non locomotor movement skills
Eye-hand coordination skills
Eye-foot coordination skills

The new game must include the following:
You have worked very hard to create a new game. Games take a lot of thought and planning before they can be implemented or played. Did you know that you used many different areas of study to complete this task. I am proud of everyone that has taken the time and energy to create a new game.
