P.E. Central Lesson Plan: Locomotor Roll
Prerequisites:
Instruction on performing locomotor skills.
Purpose of Activity:
To review/practice/assess locomotor skills.
Suggested Grade Level:
K-2
Materials Needed:
25-30 poly spots/cones/playstation mats; 1 dice (or several dice)with a locomotor skill written on each face
Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

For large group activity (see assessment section for small group activity): Start with everyone standing in the center of the gym or playspace. Have poly spots/cones/playstation mats scattered throughout the area.

Demonstrate each locomotor skill used on the dice.

Instruct the students that they must travel to and touch the number of poly spots/cones/playstation mats indicated by the roll of the dice, using the locomotor skill for that number.

The teacher or a student can roll the dice. Students must then travel to and touch the correct number of poly spots/cones/playstation mats using the locomotor skill shown on the dice. For example: walk 3 or skip 6. Return to the circle when finished.

When everyone is back, roll the dice again. I like to pick someone who does a nice job performing the locomotor skill, not just the student who finishes first.

Variations:

This game can be made more challenging by adding the number on the dice with another number. For example: dice reads walk 3 - add 4, so walk 7.


Assessment Ideas:

This activity can be played with several small groups, each assigned to a specific home marker. For example: red cone. When all the students are back at the red cone, a student rolls the dice and they continue with this activity.

Also, this activity would work well as a station activity.
