The purpose of these flash cards is to connect Physical Literacy with Literacy. They can be used in relays to designate how to move during the relay. In a dance unit the cards can be given out in sets such as a locomotor card and a pathway card.
Create-A-Dance with Movement Flash Cards.
1. Prerequisite: Students know the concepts of locomotor & pathway
2. Every student has a locomotor card, a pathway card and static pose card. They move to the music according to the cards they have. When the music stops students must freeze in the static pose found on their card. You may walk around and ask if they are symmetrical or asymmetrical. Have students switch their entire set of cards and repeat.
3. Do combinations of cards that fit your lesson and benchmarks.
