- 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.
