Name of Activity:
Suggested Grade Level:K-6
Materials Needed:Polyspotss (one for each student)
Description of Idea
This activity is designed to teach students the basic muscles with word association and movement. Spread the Polyspots out in the playing area. Have students stand on a Polyspot. The teacher calls out the muscle and/or key phrase and the students perform the movement associated with that muscle. The muscles are listed below along with the key phrase and movement.
Create your own key phrases and action movements for each muscle.
First review the muscles in the order written above. Then mix up the order when students are familiar with the muscles, key phrases, and movement actions.
As the students get better at identifying and knowing the muscles, increase the pace of the activity.
Instead of the teacher calling out the muscle and/or key phrase, the teacher can perform the movement and have the students call out the muscle and/or key phrase while also performing the movement.
Create small groups and have students take turns leading their group through the activity.
