Teaching Suggestions:

Have students in scattered formation and in their own self space so they can see the teacher. Give ownership to students after you have created it by having them modify and give new examples to add on to the dance.

Variations:

Can add light hand weights or dynabands for older children to expand or challenge.
Change activities or exercises.
Have students work with partners and make up their own Hokey Pokey Aerobics.

Assessment Ideas:

Have students check their heart rates before the dance and again after to see if their are any changes in their heart rate during exercise. Have them note any other body changes (ie hot, sweaty, heavy breathing, etc.)

Ask students to create their own "Hokey Pokey" dance using their own movements. Have them label their activities and identify which are cardiovascular, muscular strength and endurance or as flexibility.
