Gymnasitics Part 1
We then had students practice balancing on different body parts (balance on 2 feet and 1 hand) and then on different numbers of body parts (can you balance on 4 body parts). Later in the lesson we had students move to music using different locomotor skills and we would yell out a number. When the music stopped the students would quickly get into a balance with that many body parts and hold it for 3-5 seconds. We extended our 3-5 lesson by having the students work on partner balances. Below are a few pictures of some of the different partner balances our students came up with.
Week 2 - Rolling
My next blog post will take us through Week 5 and 6 which for the younger students were stations and older students building, practicing, and performing a routine. This will be coming very shortly!
