This activity has been revised and was originally created by Kathy Heydt and Monica Allon and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992). The second edition is available for purchase.
This activity uses the motion of crawling to work on muscle strength, weight shifting, and increased proximal stability, the ability to use the extremities while maintaining core stability. It improves the ability for students to use playground and exercise equipment, and to participate in recreational sports activities. Lessons include Adapted Physical Education and Orientation and Mobility.
