Developing movement skills (rolling, kicking, throwing, hockey pass skills, eye-hand and eye-foot coordination); supporting learning (problem solving skills)
- Stand the targets up like bowling pins and draw a line two to five metres in front of the targets for the bowler to stand behind.
- Invite the children to knock over the pins by rolling the ball.
- Children with vision impairment can be assisted to know the location of the pins by having music playing behind the pins or a fan blowing air from the pins to the child.
- Together with the children, rearrange the pins to make them more difficult to hit, e.g. further apart, further away.
