Tips for Organising a Skipathon

Have the students organise a class/school Skipathon by:

  • Deciding on a day and time
  • Choosing events that will be included, e.g. How long can we skip without stopping? How many times can we skip in one minute?
  • Students can time or count skips forwards/backwards/number of people who skip together etc.
  • Organise for a parent or teacher to be the judge and award certificates to all participants (students can design these themselves)
  • Students can take photos and write up the results for the school newsletter or local paper
  • Make a book of skipping rhymes, check out these websites that list some great skipping songs and singing games.
  • Invent your own skipping rhyme and routine.
  • Research skipping - where did it start? How long has it been around? Students can write an article for the school newsletter.
