Field Days

Teacher Notes

After helping coach our school to a NYC City Championship in Track & Field I helped organize a Field Day for our school.  Running one of the legs of a relay for his seventh grade class was a young man, Lillo Thomas, who was unbelievably fast.  Naturally we encouraged Lillo to go out for the track team the following year.  He captured an individual city championship and he went on to set a world's record a few years later!

Lillo qualified for the 1984 Olympic Games but unfortunately was injured in an auto accident.

Field Days take a lot of planning.  The links on this page have a lot of theme-based field days.

Teacher Notes
Organize a field day with an Olympic Theme. Instead of the shotput do a yarn ball toss. For gymnastics you can use a balance bean and have students balance a beanbag on their head and cross the beam without having the beanbag fall.
