Suggested Grade Level:


Definition: "Self Space" is all the space that the body or its parts can reach without traveling away from a starting location. (Graham, et. al., 1998, p. 219)

Use a marker (i.e., beanbag, carpet square, poly spot) to identify your self space. You can't move from there. Pretend you are on an "island"

Unless the teacher asks you, keep your self space to yourself

Pretend you are in a bubble and that bubble is as big as far as you can stretch and reach with your body parts

Keep your self space as far from others when playing movement games
