Description of Idea

Students will move around the gym in either clockwise or counter clockwise fashion. They will perform the movement that is listed on the PowerPoint (e.g., skip, hop, etc.) I play the song "All Star" by Smashmouth it seems to fit the theme pretty good. You can have the movements switch automatically, or just do it manually for how long you want. The song I play is just over 3 minutes, so it doesn't take much time at all.


Any of the movements can be adapted or replaced. If a special needs student can't perform a specific movement, they can do a movement that they are capable of doing.
