One that I do and will be doing soon is called Land Mines. Students pair up with another student along perimeter. Inside the perimeter I spread out numerous rubber animals. I give each pair a blind fold, can be done without. The blind folded is lead by their partner around the animals. First, they are done with hands on shoulders and move them around. Then, they move by tapping the shoulder for the direction to turn or tap on head to stop. Last, they do it only using their voice. I do this k-5.
Another one I do is called Turnstile. All you need is a long rope or long jump rope. Tie one end to something and with the other you turn it towards the students so they don't have to jump just run. First they do it alone. Then with a partner, then in 4's, etc.
Very easy one is the Balloon Walk, video posted on here. Have a balloon per student. With a partner, students walk while keeping the balloon from touching the floor usuing various body parts. 1) Heads 2)shoulders 3) legs 4) backs 5) stomachs, etc. Then do as a huge train with everyone together.
