Game Category Posters


Help your students better understand the four main game categories with these eye-catching posters!

This is a printable product download.



I created the Game Category Posters to help my middle school students make sense of the different categories of games we explore in class:

  1. Target Games
  2. Striking and Fielding Games
  3. Net and Wall Games
  4. Invasion/Territory Games

Along with a game category icon and description, I also include four examples of games that fall within each category so that students could quickly reflect on other possible games with the category.

I hope you enjoy these posters and that – at the very least – they bring some fun colours into your gym! If you’d like to learn more about the teaching games for understanding (TGfU) model, check out my blog post and video introduction.

Happy Teaching!
