Description of Idea

After you teach your students these steps it makes for a great rhythmic warm up. I actually had the kids come up with the activities.

Students chose to start by doing jumping jacks, then when music changes, move into these other moves each change-Squats, Lunges Free Dance - we chose the floss, push-ups. Each move will repeat twice throughout the song. Use video below to help guide your students.
