Stop the activity anytime and see who has the most students in their blob. Start over with new people who are “it.”
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Partner Racetrack Fitness
Set up 6 stations in teaching area. Each station has a Task Card listing 6- 8 exercise to perform. Select the locomotor movement to be performed by partner during each exercise.
On the start signal, one partner begins the first exercise or stretch listed at the station, while the other partner jogs/gallops/skips/leaps/slides around the perimeter of the stations.
