Psychomotor Domain: Use both their left and right arms for weight lifting, there whole body for dynamic and static balances

Cognitive Domain: Follow directions and remember to stay on their spots.

Examples: Balance on two feet and two hands, balance on two feet and one hand, balance on one foot and two hands. Turn around and try to do them the other way (try belly side up and belly side down). Then the students will practice their dynamic balance by taking turns and walking on a 2" line maintaing contact with the strip. When ready, they can attempt to walk in a heel-to-toe pattern.
