OPEN Phys Ed is an organization that hosts tons of great resources for physical education teachers. Additionally, OPEN organizes initiatives to encourage students to participate in physical education activities. One of those initiatives is National Field Day.
OPEN National Field Day is an initiative that runs through May and June. It has a social media element that you can participate in to win prizes. If you don’t want to participate in the social media component, you can still use the dozens of resources that are associated with OPEN National Field Day.
Applications for Education
On the OPEN National Field Day site you’ll find PDFs, Word docs, Google Docs, and videos that provide instructions for dozens of activities that your students can do as part of your own field day or as part of a regular physical education class. There are individual and team activities included in the catalog of activities.
