National Recess Week

National Recess Week (March 2-6, 2009) is how Cartoon Network is celebrating the best part of the school day – recess!

Not only is recess totally fun, it’s also a good time to get out and get moving! When you play outside, you’re not only having a great time with your friends – you’re also staying fit, active and healthy.

What games do you and your friends like to play at recess? Here are some Kidzworld faves:

Four Square

Draw a large square on the pavement with chalk, then divide it into four smaller, equal squares. One player stands in each of the four squares. Each player gets a title – the most important square’s player is the king, followed by the queen, prince and princess (or you can call yourselves the president, vice-president, treasurer and secretary). To start the game, the king serves the ball by bouncing it once in his/her square then hitting it toward one of the other players in the other squares. That player has to catch the ball before it bounces in his/her square. If he/she doesn’t catch it, he/she is out and everyone moves up a rank.

Horse

This is a basketball game where two or more players take turns shooting the basketball from certain spots around the net. The first marked spot from which you shoot the ball is the “H” spot. The second is the “O,” the third is the “R,” the fourth is the “S,” and the last is the “E” spot. The first player stands in the H spot and shoots the ball at the basket. If he/she makes the shot, he/she gets an “H.” Then the next player takes a turn. Once all the players have shot from the first spot, they move on to the “O” spot. If a player misses a shot, he/she has to stay in that spot until he/she gets a basket. The first player to spell “HORSE” wins.


Jump Rope

Jumping rope is an amazing workout. It’s easy – all you need is yourself and skipping rope! Or, play with your friends with a longer rope. Two people turn the rope from either end while one jumper skips rope in the middle. Harder yet – double dutch! This is when two rope turners turn two separate skipping ropes at once and the jumper has to jump both at the same time in between the two turners!

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

    Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
