A teacher tip for balance/gymnastic stunts for grades 4-6.
Submitted by Tom Wherry, Andover, Minnesota.
BACKGROUND: Here’s an idea that I have used several times as a part of our Stunts and Tumbling unit for 5th and 6th grade students. Teacher-made stunt cards are required for this activity.
The students are divided into groups of 3 or 4. Pictures of the stunts are passed out and each group tries to perform the group balances. After a while, we let each group pick their favorite group balance to show the rest of the class!
Be sure to use mats when doing these balances! Have fun!!
