Description of Idea
After you set up the gym, the students travel around the game board like game pieces. They roll the dice and move the given number of spaces. If there is a plate with an activity listed, students complete the task, roll again and move on. There are many exercises written on plates and scattered through out the playing area. If students land on 1 of the 4 CHUTES, they move (use locomotor skills like leaping, galloping, bear walking, etc.) to the middle of the gym where they complete another task and then head to the specified corner 1 through 4 and continue on. Students work in pairs for this activity.
Ask the kids to take their heart rates before they start. Measure them at different times and have them write them down. Review at end to see when their heart rates were up.
