Basketball in the Classroom

So if you read my last post about why March Madness should be a topic of discussion in the classroom, then you may be wondering how sports can have anything to do with learning (besides in PE). Well here are some fun activities that you can use that are all basketball themed/related.

Basketball Review Game - go as simple as a trashcan and paper ball or as grandiose as an inflatable hoop and ball, but this game is adaptable to review any topics covered in your classroom using any of these variations (1, 2, or 3)

This Pinterest board has lots of lessons if you are looking to purchase something basketball themed

Discuss the History of Basketball and how things change with time 





If you want a low-prep resource to join in the madness, check out my March Madness bundle in my TpT store. It's a winner for sure :)

Go Team!
