Find Your Fit Fact

Walking has the highest compliance rate of any exercise.

Find Your Fit Activity Suggestion: Ice Fall Ball

Objective: To get students to learn to move quickly and efficiently as a group.

Materials Needed: 1 tennis ball per group

In groups of 6-8 (depending on class size, try to have 2-3 groups)

– Students begin lying on the floor in the plank position (hands and knees work fine) in a line, with the sides of their bodies facing the beginning and end of the general space

– The goal is to be the first group to successfully cross the end line

– On the teacher’s command, the person lying at the end closest to the finish line rolls the tennis ball under the rest of his/her group, then lies back down (plank position/ hands and knees), depending on skill level, it is possible to just get students to stand (picture below)

– The person at the other end of the line will trap the tennis ball, then bring it to the end closest to the finish line.

– Once there they must roll the ball under his/her group members, then lie down (plank position/hands and knees)

– This repeats until the group has reached the end line.
