Some assembly required....
After downloading the files, print out and laminate the hand held Pokemon cards as well as the Pokemon wall cards. Cut out the hand held cards on the lines. Some of the hand held cards will need to print on both sides of the paper to instruct the students on how to evolve the Pokemon they currently have.
Tape the wall cards on the walls around your gym. Place a container underneath each of the Pokemon wall cards you put up. Put the corresponding hand held Pokemon cards in the bin (If Charmander is on the wall, put the hand-held Charmander cards in the bin directly underneath). Some of the Pokemon on the wall cards will have exercises listed on them and some will not. The ones that have exercises listed on them are basic Pokemon. Pokemon that have no exercises on them are evolved forms of Pokemon.
Level 1: Basic Pokemon Fitness
Instruct the students that they will be trying to become Pokemon Masters in PE today. Their job is to collect as many Pokemon as possible by the end of the activity. Students can work individually, in partner pairs or teams for this activity. In order to capture Pokemon in this game, students must complete certain exercises. For example, if a student decides he or she wants a Charmander, they will go over to the Charmander card on the wall, look at the exercises listed and perform them for the required amount of reps/seconds. Once the exercises listed for Charmander are completed, the student will take 1 hand-held Charmander card out of the bin to show they have captured this Pokemon. Once they have captured one Pokemon, they now have a choice to make. They can either go look for another basic Pokemon on a wall card to capture or they can decide to evolve the Pokemon they already captured. If they want to evolve the Pokemon in their hand, they must flip the hand-held card over, look to see what exercises they need to do, perform and complete the exercises. Upon completion, they can find that Pokemon's evolved form on the wall and go over and take 1 of the hand-held cards for their new Pokemon. The exercises for the basic Pokemon are easier and the exercises for evolved forms of Pokemon are more difficult. All in all in this game there are 31 Pokemon cards that the students can try to earn by the end.
