State Standard: 1, 2, 3, 4

Equipment: Colored round cones and candy land cards Grade: K-2
Purpose of Event: Cardiovascular endurance, partner play, and fun.
Time: 15- 20 minutes
Introduction: Place the candy land exercise cards under the cones.  Make sure there is the same number of exercises under each color of cones.  Scatter the cones around the playing area.  Partner up the students and have them line up on one end of the playing area.

Candy Land: Students are given a candy land card with 6 cones on it.  Each card should be different.  A typical card may have cones in this order: Purple, Green, Yellow, Red, Orange, And Blue.  Students run and look under the cones in that order.  If an exercise is posted under that cone, they must perform the exercise before going on.  After the card is completed, they return to the teacher and choose another.   
Concerns: Move safely around the gym. Make students know (before) how to perform each exercise described on the cards.
