|Stage of Activity|| |

5 - 10 minutes
|Number of People|| |
2 + (the more the better)
|How it Works|| |
Designate a playing area. Smaller areas promote more agility; larger areas promote more endurance. This activity can be played in ¼ of a gym or on the area of a large field.
Space out equal number of cones right side up (mountains) and upside down (valleys). E.g. 20 mountains and 20 valleys.
Designate a time limit, ideally between 1 and 2 minutes.
Mountains collect the mountains and count them. Valleys collect the valleys and count them. *Repeat several times, switching the roles (mountains become valleys and vice versa).
|Applications||Agility, speed of movement, coordination, body and space awareness, teamwork|
Use larger or smaller space to emphasize different movement themes.
