Through the Forest

Subject Area

Physical Education




The purpose of this activity is for students to be able to grasp the concept of personal space, direction, using locomotor skills, and different pathways. Their goal is to find their own pathway through the "forest" without touching any of the obstacles (thorns, rocks, or tree limbs). They can cross the bridges (aerobic steps) when they come to them. Students focus on personal space (by not being next to someone), correctly performing various locomotor skills (skipping, walking, running, etc.), and finding different pathways through the "forest".
