This comprehensive locomotor unit plan will have your students excited to practice locomotor (or traveling) skills within the many varied activities. It was designed for Second Grade, but can be used in first as well with some activities appropriate for Kindergarten.
It is designed to go along with short picture books- "Socco and Slurpie's Island Adventure" and "Socco and Slurpie's Island Adventure- The Lost Chapers," both written by myself (Mark A. Ricketts) and both available as paperback on amazon.com (and as an ebook on the kindle, kindle pc version, or kindle app for ipads and ipods.)
HOWEVER, the pirate themed unit plan and many of the activities within the lessons can be used without using those books by prompting the students with using their imagination about an island and pirates. The unit is, of course, best when using the books.
If you do use the books, available at amazon.com, the unit allows you to seamlessly include ELA standards as your students enjoy using their imaginations in physical education class.
