National "The Games" Day June 1

This day would occur sometime during the last week off of school. Perferably on June 1. During this time, "The Games" would begin."The Games" are inspired by the franchise, " The Hunger Games. While we know the Hunger Games to be violent, we should make sure to simply "play it down" Instead of having actual death, we just pretend and then they are disqualified from the battle. This way, we can still have fun with actually being physically hurt.

Now, we should set a specific age requirement. Also, I think this should happen at school as a "break". This event should be take up the entire school day as well. I think 4th graders and up should be involved. As the grades mature, their "weapons" can as well. We start with water balloons, then plastic guns, then at the end of high school, paintball guns. Obviously, little kids can get carried away, so they should wait until they're older. This day should include battles, obstacle courses, and various challenges. All of this would conclude National "The Games" Day.
