Pre-Opening Activity

Sports Mix-ups


Make 12 sets of sports cards using the words listed below. Write each word on a different color of paper, then cut out each letter. Mix up the letters to a word then place them in a baggie. Divide the boys into small groups. Give each group a sports card baggie. On a signal, each group has to lay out cards and unscramble the letters to reveal what the sport is. All group members shout out the sport. (Or, ask each team to be silent until they have spelled out their word.) The winning group gets a small prize.

BADMINTON
BOWLING
CRICKET
VOLLEYBALL
TABLE TENNIS
SWIMMING
SOFTBALL
GYMNASTICS
TRACK & FIELD
BICYCLING
BASEBALL
HOCKEY

Variation:

Make two sets of cards. Give each group the same word and see who can unscramble it first. Give points for the correct answer and award a small prize to the winning group.
