Subject Area

Physical Education


K, 1, 2


Divide the class in half. One half of the class is on the floor in push-up position and the other half is standing ready to move. On signal, the standing students move around students on the floor. The students on the floor change from a raised push-up position to a lowered push-up position each time they are circled. On signal, reverse roles.

This is a great warm up activity or can be used when teaching the components of fitness. This resource utilizes jogging but many locomotor skills could be used to reinforce locomotor movements. A video is included in this resource. 

To locate the resource, search for "popcorn", and click on the Popcorn activity card.
