Santa, The Grinch, and The Chimney


Santa, The Grinch, and The Chimney

State Standard: 1, 3

Equipment:  3 noodles, 3 feather dusters Grade: K-2
Purpose of Event: Locomotor Movements, Cardiovascular, Dodging, Movement in Personal/General space
Description:2-3 Students are selected to have the Noodles. They will be the “Grinch”.  2-3 students will have the Feather Dusters, they will “dust” off Frozen students, so they can move again. All of the other student are Santa, and move in locomotor skills around the playing area. 

 If you are touched by a Grinch, you are frozen, stand with your hands up (stuck in a chimney) until a Chimney sweep (feather duster) cleans you off and then you can move again.  Switch  Grinch and Sweeps often so everyone gets a turn.

Concerns:  Must be able to move in general space safely, and tag softly.
This idea is from:  by Traci Sternweis of WI
