Students will integrate math with an upper body movement exercise.
Main Curriculum Tie:
1st Grade - Content
Standard 1 Objective 2
Develop and demonstrate skills in gross and fine motor movement.
Number cards 1-9 or higher for advanced grades.
Background For Teachers:
Proper push-up starting position.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Body awareness will be stressed. They will learn manipulative skills while enjoying a new activity.
When the students know the proper starting position for a push-up, they are ready to begin this exercise.
- Spread paper numbers in front of the students. (Begin with the numbers 1-9.)
- Mix the numbers up.
- Explain to the students that they have to "walk" in a push-up position to all of the numbers and move them in numerical order.
Strategies For Diverse Learners:
Add additional numbers such as 68, 388, 1,008 etc... and challenge the students to put them in numerical order.
Use the letters of the alphabet, rather than numbers.
