In The Classroom - Fun With Exercise

Lesson Plan for Teachers

OVERVIEW:

This large group activity will help children explore the movements of their bodies. They begin by participating in stretching exercises using creative imagery (individual muscle groups), then children participate in movement games that encourage large motor movements promoting coordination. Some games require individuals moving alone, others in context with their classmate's movements, and others in cooperative unison with each other. Some include rhythmic or musical cues.
