Coordination - Exercise:
Can't wait? Move like a robot; kids' trainers can do that! A great training exercise for promoting coordinated movement.
Movement co-ordination, fun
Signal=Call out “low power”
We’ve made a robot. The robot can think, but it can’t move very much. It’s going to practise moving now, but we need to remember that the robot needs a lot of energy to move. That means that it’s important for the robot to go back to the battery in good time, otherwise it won’t be able to move any further. A signal will warn us in plenty of time.
For this exercise, we need a playing field, a ball for each child, and good commands.
The children stand on the playing field with their balls. On the trainer’s command, they carry out various different movements, and imitate robot movements.
At some point, the trainer calls out “low power”. The children then run back to their ball immediately and lift it up.
