Videogame Progression for Moving

  
  

Name of Activity:

Videogame Progression for Moving

Purpose of Activity:

To motivate students to moving safely in space using different locomotor skills among peers.

Prerequisites:

Variety of locomotor movements such as walking, galloping, and safe running.

Suggested Grade Level:

K – 2

Description of Idea

Videogame moving is to be used in conjunction with a tag game. You need to tell the students that they must pass each level before they can move onto running in a game, which is what students love to do.

The levels go as follows:

Level 1 speed walking
Level 2 galloping
Level 3 running

Students must demonstrate each of the following to move to the next locomotor level:

1. No bumping into one another.
2. Moving at the appropriate level.
3. No falling onto the ground.
4. No injuries.

* Each level goes for one minute and thirty seconds.
* If all students move safely in the minute and thirty seconds, they move on to the next level.

This method has reduced the number of injuries significantly.

Variations:

Change the locomotor skills to what you have been covering in class.
