Alternative Warm-up

Human Bop-it!

An activity to use in PE lessons especially in Dance to get children thinking about the rhythm and beat of the music, based on the 'bop it' game bought in shops.

Ideally done with some music but not essential and you call out the actions to which the children respond in the following ways:

  • Kick it - children kick in front of them (ensure they're all in a space first!)
  • Twist it - twist their bodies half way around then back, feet remaining in same place on the floor.
  • Spin it - children turn around
  • Pull it - imagine they are pulling two levers down from above their heads.
  • Bop it - jump in the air.

A great game to get kids properly warmed up and having some fun.
