Beetle on Back


Have students lie on their back with arms and legs straight up in the air.   Instruct them to tighten their abdominal muscles or pull their belly button in (engage abs), then have students lower their right leg and left arm at the same time while leaving their opposite arm and leg in a stationary position. Instruct them to switch back and forth and remember to keep breathing.

Daily Rule


Establish a new daily rule every day that includes physical activity. Lunge to the water fountain, tip toe to the pencil sharpener, stretch before sitting down, or hop 5 times when getting out of your seat. Eventually the students can start making the rule.

Modification Option

If you have youth who use a wheelchair, provide them with options of a “daily rule” to bring them into the game!
