Description of Idea
Children find a spot on any line on the gym floor. Allow a reasonable amount of time, then instruct them to "freeze." Start the music. The children walk forward, following lines on the floor. Stop the music. The children freeze like statues. Comment on the "great statues" as they freeze without moving. As the activity continues, challenge students to travel on the lines using different locomotor skills.
- Challenge students to travel in different directions along the lines.
- Use music with different tempos and ask students to match that speed.
- Note the students who lose their balance or are unable to stop with control when the music stops.
- Watch for correct execution of fundamental locomotor skills.
