10 Games Every 90s Kid Played That'll Make You Want To Be Back In Gym Class

- Page 1

Second only to recess, gym was one of the best parts of the day at school. It was a much needed break from hours of complicated math problems and history lessons.

While sport activities like soccer, basketball and baseball were standard in any gym class, there were plenty of other games that we played that made the class so much more memorable.

The teachers always knew the right games to pick so that we could have fun with our friends while reaping the benefits of physical activity.

Let's go down memory lane and revisit 10 gym class games that make us want to be kids all over again:

1. Dodgeball

Times Union

Friendships were formed and enemies were made whenever we played this team-based game, but in the end everyone had fun throwing and dodging balls. The sound of the ball hitting you is something that will stick with you forever.

2. Scooters


Even though our hands were subjected to extreme pain whenever we rolled over them with the scooter board, it didn't stop us from getting excited whenever we had the chance to play with these bad boys. Sometimes we even got to lie on our stomachs and roll from one end of the gym to another.

3. Knockout

If you sucked at basketball, Knockout was the next best thing. Everyone stood in a line and attempted to shoot a ball into the basketball net. If you missed your shot, the person behind you made theirs and so on until only one kid is left standing.

4. Aerobics

State of New Jersey

For those who hated team sports, aerobics days were the absolute best. We didn't have to worry about being picked last or being stuck with teammates we didn't like. As long as we had comfortable clothes and catchy tunes, we were ready to step and stomp until we got sweaty.

5. Koosh Ball Catch

Kids born today will never understand the simple joy of trying to catch Koosh Balls. Not only did these balls look funky, they were easy to catch and throw and didn't hurt when someone hit you with them. Gym teachers brought these in to motivate those kids who hated exercise so much that they feigned being sick. You know who you are.

Let's continue the nostalgia trip with even more games that brought us major fun in gym class.
