Materials Needed: (based on groups of four) six landing and jumping cue cards, one rope—one long rope cue card, two tumbling mats, two stepper steps, three long jump ropes, five cones, five polyspots, five hula hoops, two hopscotch rugs, CD player, music: “Jump” by Van Halen, “Jump” by Pointer Sisters, “Jump In” from the movie
Description of Idea
Demonstrate each station by reading from the cue cards on the wall. Students will move from one station to the next focusing on “jumping and landing” related activities. Use a consistent signal to let students know when it is time to move (signal every 3 minutes or when the song changes).
Station 1: LONG JUMP
Students will stand on the stepper step and jump off as far as they can. Challenge students to jump farther each time. Remind them not to fall after landing!
Station 2: “JUMP THE SNAKE”
Two students will hold the rope ends and sit on the floor. They begin to wiggle the rope slowly so it looks like a snake (remind them that the rope stays on the ground). The other students take turns running and jumping over the wiggly snake, hoping not to step on the rope. Students take turns holding the rope ends and jumping. As time progresses, challenge students by asking rope holders to wiggle it faster.
Station 3: SWING JUMPING—ONE LONG ROPE
Two students will hold the rope ends. They begin swinging the rope back and forth like a pendulum. The other students take turns jumping over the rope, hoping not to step on the rope. Students take turns holding the rope ends and jumping.
Station 4: ROPE JUMPING—ONE LONG ROPE
1st activity: Two students will hold the rope ends. They begin turning the rope. The other students take turns running through the twirling rope, trying not to get touched by the rope. Students take turns holding the rope ends and running through.
2nd Activity: Students will repeat 1st activity, but will now jump the rope once or twice before exiting rope, trying not to get touched by the rope.
Station 5: JUMP OVER
Students will jump over the obstacles.
Station 6: HOP SCOTCH
Students will follow the hop scotch pattern.
Station 7: JUMP JINGLE
(First child will chant)
