A Great Obstacle Course

This is an Aquatic pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 14415)

My classes usually run (in single file) "marathons" around the entire pool, either clockwise or counter-clockwise to the beat of the music. I don't let them "run through mayonnaise". They must run to the beat of the music, pumping the legs and arms.

The latest challenge is for them to "jump over their noodle and let the noodle go behind them for the next jumper". Picture a class of 20 students, each jumping over the next noodle in front of them.

They are told not to "swim" to the next noodle, but to pump those legs RUNNING to the next noodle. Nobody has ducked out of this segment yet! It turns into a great obstacle course and they all end up laughing. Most are disappointed when the music stops!

Try it!
