|How it Works|| |
Inukuit (singular = inukshuk) are found throughout the circumpolar world. In Inuit language, inuksuk means “in the likeness of a human”. They were used for many purposes including the marking of migration routes, respecting an ancestor who lived off the land, or to act as directional aids. They acted as a message to travellers that, “You are on the right path.”
Athletes make teams of 2 to 4 people and assigned an area, e.g. half a field.
OPTIONAL: Ask teams to lead a different movement skill or core exercise at each inuksuk. These could be sport-specific or general – e.g. 360 degree spin jump, ready position with fast feet, push-ups, and so on.
Teamwork, collaboration, aerobic endurance, warm-up or cool down; fundamental movement skills or core stability (if movement skills added)
Can be one on any surface and include other implements, e.g. dribbling a soccer ball, hockey puck, or basketball; cycling or wheeling; or moving backwards around the whole course.
