Rebecca created a number of PowerPoints to be utilized in various ways while projecting them. With her permission, I have converted them into formats that are compatible with a Chromebook (or really any other device, as well). The video version also allows you to easily move forward and back and to easily start at different spots as desired.
Rebecca presented this information at the Northern District IAHPERD Workshop. All links are to the converted files. Most are videos and one is a Google Slides version w/embedded videos.
Equipment—jump ropes, red, yellow, green, blue, orange & purple poly spots or floor tape Randomly scatter poly spots or floor tape on inside of gym. Place a jump rope on each spot. Have students choose a spot. Turn on balloon video. When students see their color they should drop their jump rope on their spot, get on the “track,” and run, jump, and touch ONE balloon. They can try to run another lap and touch another balloon if time permits. When balloons disappear, go back to jumping rope, and pay attention because your color will come up again.
Relay: Run, jump, touch ONE balloon, return to team, tag cone, next person goes.
(Note: Here is the link to the Slides version of this video: goo.gl/NEnXdN in case you need to edit out certain colors. I created the video from this version for ease of use.)
