How it Works

Draw two lines on the floor with chalk or tape so that the lines are close together at one end and farther apart at the other. Children do a two-foot take-off jump across the lines, starting at the end where they are closer together, and if they are successful, they move farther along the lines and try again where the lines are farther apart. As a variant, children can estimate the widest point they think they can jump and then try to jump at that point.
