Here's another great warm-up activity from Ross Chakrian (@Mr_C_PE). Ross created this in Powerpoint and I have converted it to video format to make it playable on any device. I just LOVE the student choice aspect of this warmup.
goo.gl/JMCt3Z (30 seconds locomotor, 10 seconds dice roll, 25 seconds choice activity).
goo.gl/jyC6xA (30 seconds locomotor (JOG instead of WALK), 10 seconds dice roll, 40 seconds choice activity).
Younger student versions
Version 3 - Created from Slides from Matthew Holben using Ross's original presentation)
goo.gl/5KkpwF (only one choice for each odd and even).
Version 4 (no dice rolling) - "5 Minute Warmup"
goo.gl/Uj5jP3 (30 seconds locomotor, 30 seconds choice activity (2 choices)
Many thanks to Ross, KylePE (@ElemPE1), Matthew Holben (@holben_pe) and Alex Adams (@coachadamspe) for collaborating on and testing the various versions.
In case you don't have enough dice for the number of groups you want to have: If you have devices, you can have students have their devices around the edges of the gym and they can use this online virtual dice roller: http://www.curriculumbits.com/prodimages/details/maths/doubledice.html
