Title – Builders and Bulldozers Warm-up Activity
By – Phil Rodas
Primary Subject – Health / Physical Education
Grade Level – K-2
Equipment needed: as many cones as you have or want to set up.
For this activity the teacher divides the class in half or two teams.
Team #1 will be the builders
Their job is to move around the gym in what ever manner the teacher says and pick up the cones.
Team #2 will be the bulldozers
Their job is to move around the gym in what ever manner the teacher says and knock down (tip over) the cones.
Teacher has the students start on opposite ends of the gym and let them go.
After a few minutes stop them and switch roles.
Some ways to vary this is by using different movements and to play music while they are going.
