for Frog Day
students will participate in a "hopping" game.
- A large space allowing for
- Bases, carpet squares,
masking tape, or chalk to mark off "lily
- A dice or spinner, if
- Set up a path of
"lily pads" in a large open space.
Either baseball bases, carpet squares, marking off
with masking tape, or drawing them on an outside
surface will work.
- Allow the students to hop
along the path.
- If desired, turn it into a
game in which the students are the moving
pieces. Have the students roll a dice or spin a
spinner and hop that many hops to get to the end of
the path. For a larger class, it may be best to
set up more than one "game board" so
multiple games can be happening at once.
- Play a game of Leap Frog!
- Using music in the
background, a selection which starts out slow and
builds to a faster tempo, have the students imitate
the life cycle of a frog. Curled up in a ball
for the egg stage, stretching out and wiggling for the
tadpole stage, small hops for the froglet, and big
hops for the adult frog.
