In keeping with the Star Wars theme in my Physical Education classes, I try to look for every opportunity to incorporate any aspect of the movies into my teaching.
Floor Balance Activities
Based on the overwhelming positive feedback on the one I created below, I decided to make a floor balance video and PowerPoint as well. Lightsabers are a must!!!
Balance beam activities
As I was in the middle of teaching gymnastics, I found an app that gave you the opportunity to create all sorts of balances from the 400 images on the app (The app is called Acrosport). I then started looking for balance beam activities online that I could use to create a PowerPoint presentation that students could follow while at that station. Finding none that I liked, I created one myself. Below you will see selected images as well as the presentation in two formats: PowerPoint and PDF. I play each slide for 30 seconds and the presentation constantly loops so there is no need to start it over again. Don't forget the lightsaber!
