Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options

-    Add in movement task before the instructions, such as ‘Jump here’, ‘Gallop there’ and ‘Walk backwards everywhere’.
-    Change the speed of the movements before the instructions, such as ‘Slow here’ and ‘Fast there’.
-    If you have a participant who uses a wheelchair, be intentional around the movements that you select to allow them to participate.
-    For children who are deaf or hard of hearing, make sure to use your whole body to indicate the intended locations, such as pointing at your head for ‘here’, both arms pointing the same direction for ‘there’ and waving arms and jumping up and down for ‘everywhere’.
-    If you have a child with another type of disability not mentioned above, they may be able to participate in this activity without adaptations or modifications
