Activity: Stop, Drop, and Roll

Objective:

to leap through an object

Materials:

1 hula hoop or doorway  per whole group
(Optional)  ~ 6 felt or paper flames  for prep
(Optional)  1 roll of tape  for prep
(Optional)  1 scissors  for prep

Supporting Media:

Prep:

  • Gather materials.
  • Print, cut, and tape flames onto hula hoop or doorway (optional).

Instructions:

  1. Totetude Warm-up Song
  2. Ask learners, "What is a fire?" and,  "How does it start?"
  3. After the discussion, explain to learners, "We will practice what to do if we ever have a fire on us.  The first thing we do is STOP (hold arms straight out and both palms facing learners)!  Then we DROP (bend writs so that both palms face the ground.  And ROLL (roll closed fists around each other).
  4. Repeat the instructions one more time.  Allow learners to repeat the instructions with you and then on their own. 
  5. Ask learners why we should stop, drop, and roll.  Discuss that fire needs air to burn.  When we stop, drop, and roll we are getting rid of the air it needs and it will go out.  
  6. Explain to learners that the hula hoop or doorway has pretend flames around it.  Each learner will jump through the hoop or doorway and everyone will say, "STOP,  DROP,  and ROLL!" 
  7. The learner will stop, get down on the ground, and roll several times to put out the pretend flames.

Extension:

  • Have a race to see who can roll the fastest from one side of the room to the other.

Reflections:

  • I am able to leap through something.
  • I am able to stand in a line.
  • I am able to tell a story or experience.
