Physical Education teachers are often asked to plan the annual Field Day. There are many ways to organize your Field Day and make it a special event for your students and faculty.
When I first started teaching, I inherited a competitive field day. For two years, I used the existing plan. Students competed in up to 4 events (out of 10-12 depending on the year). In order to select events, I spent a month preparing the students for the field day during PE classes. I realized that this made little sense from a "best practice" stand point and decided to make a change. Since then, every field day we have done at Deep Creek Elementary has been cooperative.
