Beam Walk Activity Card

Intended Learning
 Students understand the stability –mobility equilibrium.
 Students are able to move their bodies into a more stable
position by lowering their centre of gravity.

Using a beam (or a straight line on the ground) try to walk balanced up on tip toes with your arms
straight up above you.
Move yourself across the beam in the most stable position possible.
Teaching Questions
Explain the steps you will take to lower your centre of gravity as much as possible while still being
capable of moving across the beam?
If crawling is the most stable position to move, why do we not crawl everywhere?
