Title – Colorful Hoops
By – Michelle
Primary Subject – Health / Physical Education
Grade Level – K-2


      1 hoop per child

      Laminated colored construction paper squares

    Cones (optional)

Scatter hoops on gym floor.
On signal, students will move around gym performing desired locomotor skill.


      1. On signal, students stand in any hoop.
      2. On signal students stand in hoop that corresponds with the color paper teacher is holding up.
      3. On signal teacher calls out a color, and that hoop must be put away. Alternate between locomotor activity and calling another color.
      For example:

“If you have a yellow hoop, put it on the cone. If you still have a hoop, jump rope with your hoop; if you don’t have a hoop gallop.” Students learn color recognition, sharing hoop space and to travel safely.
