This PE primary resource gives children the chance to learn some fascinating facts about lesser known sports. How do skyakers take part in their sport? What sport is no longer part of the Summer Olympics? Which sport was former US President Abraham Lincoln accomplished at?

Pupils will learn some surprising facts about unusual sports in our National Geographic Kids’ Physical Education primary resource sheet.

The teaching resource can be used in study group tasks for discussion about how there are different types of sports for people of different abilities and with varying  skills. It could be used as a printed handout for each pupil to review and annotate, or for display on the interactive whiteboard for class discussion.

Activity: Ask children whether they have heard of any of the sports mentioned in the resource. Do any of them compete in any unusual sports themselves outside of school? Pupils could work together in groups to come up with their own sporting tournaments. What is the name of the sport they’ve come up with? What do you have to do to take part in it? Is it a team competition, or do competitors take part as individuals? Challenge pupils to take part in each groups’ sporting activity. Which sport did they enjoy the most? Why?
