BALANCING BODIES

10:00 min

DESCRIPTION

Players jog around freely. When the Playmaker yells out a number (either 1,2,3,4,5,6,7), the children must balance on the number of body parts as instructed. They can choose to work individually, or they can team up with a partner.

For example, if the Playmaker yells “one!”, then the children must stand and balance on only one body part – like standing on one foot. If they choose, they can join together, where one child hops on the back of another, and the one standing balances on one foot.

For higher numbers, it might be very necessary for them to come together with one or two other children.

SPORTS SKILLS OUTCOME:

  • A fun, physical warm-up that prepares kids mentally and physically for practice

LIFE SKILLS OUTCOME:

  • Creative thinking: How to balance on one body part? Stand on one foot yes…. But is there anything else I can do to make it interesting? How can I do something that no one else has done, just to have some fun and challenge myself?
  • Teamwork: There can be more fun and creative thinking when two brains and two bodies join together. For the higher numbers, this also makes the task easier.
