Teaching SKILLZ:
NEUROBICS – On the second round, as the leader does the moves, the instructor can have them count by colors. This would help connect their left and right sides of their brain, as well as keep the students engaged.
LONG-TERM MEMORY – The student must be able to recall three different basics, and lead the other students in the class through them while counting loud and remembering how to do the moves correctly. They also have to make sure they are paying attention to the people they are leading, as at the end they must choose someone who was the best teammate.
Step 1
Divide your students into groups.
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Give each group their own section of the mat to work in.

Step 4 – Takeaways:
  • Be loud as you lead the moves.
