Yard Games are competitive, low impact activities that are easy to setup, involve minimal equipment and few participants. They are ideal for PE because they are fun and promote physical activity throughout the lifespan particularly for individuals who are challenged finding time for activity. Come play Kubb, Kanjam, Washers, Ladder Golf and Bocce and learn how they can be taught and assessed in and out of schools. (CEU)
