- hot glue gun
- paper and pencil (optional)
- Prepare for the activity by creating the ring toss board.
- Hot glue the pirate hooks to different areas on the large poster board.
- Paint the board and give each hook a different value.
- Children can then take turns practicing their underhand throw (you can model it for them if it is their first time practicing this skill).
- Instruct the children to keep track of their points and refresh their addition skills (provide them with paper and pencil if needed).
- Observe and record the children’s gross motor skills during the activity. Were they able to throw the rings underhand? Do not assess the children on how many points they scored, but rather on their throwing technique.
