I had seen the “broomball discussion” on physics packets before, but had never thought of making it like a relay, as this teacher did. Thanks, Brad, for sharing and getting me to think about a new, fun way for students to experience forces. Before, I had always had just 1 broom and 1 bowling ball, and had students take turns coming to the front and moving the ball around here and there, but making it like a relay is an awesome idea!

Okay, enough words, time for pictures and video!


The map/explanation of what we did.


The qualifying round. I was pretty harsh on penalties (+10 seconds per bad hit!)


The final four!
