This activity has been revised and was originally created by Kathy Heydt and Monica Allon and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992). The second edition is available for purchase.
This motor development activity gives students the opportunity to work on weight shifting, muscle strength, kneeling, walking, jumping and hopping, for easier participation in recreational sports and exercise activities. Lessons include Orientation and Mobility, Adapted Physical Education, and Early Cognitive Skills.
Hint: Perform the activities on a safe surface such as an exercise mat, and guard the student against falling or bumping into obstacles.
