Fitness activity that gets bodiesmoving and brains working.
Pair up stackers and give each pair a set of Speed Stacks. Spread the stacker pairs around the activity area with a minimum arm distance apart from other pairs. One stacker from each pair starts as the stacker, in a down position with their hands flat on the floor, and the other stacker as the ‘exerciser’, standing in front of their partner ready to perform an exercise or specified movement activity.
On the ‘go’ signal the stacker starts stacking the designated pattern while the exerciser performs a specified movement. The stacker counts how many times they do the pattern, while the exerciser performs the specified movement. After 20-60 seconds, the stop signal is given and the stacker and exerciser exchange their counts and switch roles. Continue, change stacking patterns and movement activities.
Students stay in their own space and work in pairs or small groups staying at least 6’ apart. Students take turns leading a strength or flexibility challenge.
SEL helps strengthen the mind-body connection and center mental, social, and emotional health along with physical health.
