After completing my gymnastics unit, I instruct students to form groups of at least 4-8. Explain that each group will be allowed 1-2 days to create their own gymnastics routine. Skills can be chosen from the previously learned traveling, gymnastics skills, and or stunts. Students will be given additional time to practice the day of the gymnastic routine performances. Each group will perform their routine for the class during the last half of class.
Be sure to take a picture of each champion group and post outside the gym to advocate and promote this unit to the other students. Gymnastics, Dance, and Games creations are a BIG DEAL at my school and the students really look forward to these units!
