Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Formation Rhythmic Running
On signal (drum, clap) • Runners freeze in place. They resume running when the regular beat begins again. • Runners make a full turn in four running steps, lifting the knees high while turning. • Runners go backward, changing the direction of the circle.
Circle Formation: Follow the back of somebody’s neck to create a circle. The tone of the drum controls the quality of the movement, light sound light run, heavy sound heavy run. When the drum stops students run in scattered formation, when it resumes, they return to circular formation and follow rhythm.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
