Suggested Grade Level:


Hopping is very similar to jumping but it is done on ONE foot only

Push off with toes and bend your knee to lift off into the air

Land softly on your toes and bend your knee and hips when landing

Other leg is usually bent with foot held behind you

Put arms out to the side to keep balance

Hopping can be done in the same place or you can move throughout an area
