Description: The students will build their core strength by holding their body off the ground using their palms and their feet.
Step 1
  • Have your students sit with their palms on the ground at their side (fingers pointed forward); and their knees up with their feet flat on the floor (toes pointed forward).
Step 2 -Explain the rules:
  • When I say, “go” you will raise your body off the ground with the palms of your hands and your feet, as if you were a table.
