Review your learning target and determine how students might walk or move through the content. For example, in math, you might have students walk to points on a graph. In a geography lesson, you might have students place themselves on a specific city or geographical feature. Once you have your idea, place the liner on the floor and use a permanent marker to draw on it.
Here’s a photo of one I saw being used in a kindergarten classroom in Colorado. The students were learning how to retell the important parts of a story, and had to stand on each element as they told a peer about their book.
- thinking maps or graphic organizers
- calculators (math facts) or computer keyboards (spelling words)
- a huge heart for the cardiovascular system
- a map of your state or country
- emoticons for various feelings
