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
