Name of Activity:

Locomotor Delivery

Purpose of Activity:

To reinforce locomotor skills (walk, run, jump, hop, gallop, slide, leap, skip)


Introduction of locomotor skills using cues (walk, run, jump, hop, gallop, slide, leap, skip).

Suggested Grade Level:


Materials Needed:

Locomotor skill cards (Word | PDF)
12 hula hoops Optional: Music to enhance engagement

Description of Idea

The teacher will scatter the hula hoops within the activity area and place 8 locomotor skill cards inside the hoop “upside down”. The teacher will also assign students a “teammate” (Teammate A and Teammate B). Teammates will find a personal space near a hula hoop.

On a start signal, Teammate A will picks up one of the locomotor skill cards and review the cues; then, hand the card to Teammate B. Teammate A will perform the locomotor skill within the activity area (approximately one minute) while Teammate B assesses their performance (looking for the cues). After the skill is performed, Teammate B discusses with Teammate A the cues performed EXCELLENTLY; and, cues that need improvement (approximately one minute)! Once the discussion is complete, Teammate B places the locomotor skill card “right side up” in the hula hoop.

On “another” start signal, Teammate B picks up one of the locomotor skill cards and reviews the cues; then, hands the card to Teammate A. Performance and assessments continue; and, the locomotor skill card is placed right side up in the hoop. Teammates continue this routine until all of the cards are facing “right side up”!

Assessment Ideas:

Formative assessment through student’s eyes.
