Focusing on the sequencing of instructions this activity will have students create a dance function in pairs using a set of cards that dictate the sequence of actions such as jump, clap, slide, turn around. After a set time has passed non-voluntary selection could be used to have a select group of students share their sequence with the whole class, highlighting how easy it is to follow a set sequence of moves. Establishing this idea of following a sequence could then be used to help teach a variety of other concepts to students.
This activity was made with lower primary school students in mind but could be adapted to middle and upper primary with the inclusion of modifying cards. For example, if the primary instruction was jump, a modifier that determines the speed, direction or expression could also be added. Not allowing the dancer to view the cards is another method of increasing the cognitive load for older students.
