Make a number of cones spread out on an open play area with clear boundaries for “home bases”. Have students find a “home” spot. Explain a series of signals each which correlates with an action that the students must perform. You can make up your own signals that you want students to practice. (e.g. 1 whistle tweet means freeze, 2 whistle tweets means return to home base, or anything you want to make it). When you roll your arms, it means scramble and the children can move all around the designated area until they see or hear the next signal. A student who is slow to get back to their “home base” is assigned a task to complete before returning to the game.
