Artic Unit: Iditarod

Artic Unit: Idtarod

State Standard: 1, 3, 4, & 5

Equipment: Scooter for each pair of students (or each their own if enough scooters and space) Cones, Stop watch, Music, Floor arrows.
Grade: K-2
Purpose of Event: Cardiovascular, Arm strength, leg strength
Time: 10-15 minutes

Each pair of students have a scooter, (or if enough scooter, each have their own). Have students start at one end of the gym and ride the scooters around the cones (which are placed all over the gym) I put arrows around on the floor so they can see the path to take. Have them see how many laps they can make in a given time. Or time one lap and see who can be quick and safe!

Also can add half-hula-hoops stuck into cones so that they have things to go under. All lots of different challenges.

Concerns: Be careful of fingers around the wheels, I only allow behinds on the scooters
