Here's a self-guided (self-paced) balancing skills progression that students work autonomously on, giving them ownership over their own learning, and a purpose! There are 8 skills to work on, and they must perform each with both sides of their body (so it's technically 16 challenges, not 8)! If they can't hold the balance for 10 seconds, they must do it again. Feel free to let them modify for their own needs.
This frees to the teacher up (they are so engaged!) to help those who need it most. These can work with Plickers magnets (plagnets) assessment system as well to track the learning (or students can also write their initials or similar on a whiteboard to track their progression). I project it on a movie screen, but they can also be printed out. SHAPE America grade level outcomes included in poster.
Activity can last about 20 minutes for 4th-6th graders, more for K-3 (K-1 might need to partner up or have older helpers).
