When students are lined up, quiet, and showing body control:

Check for Understanding:

Call on 3-5 students to answer/demonstrate:

  • What was a skill they used well in the relay race today?
  • What was one thing their team needed to improve on to do better in the race?
  • Which partner challenge was the most challenging for them and why?

Celebratory Closure:

Share that you are excited to move more with them next time and excited to see them use a variety of skills to cooperate and challenge themselves! Call out in a celebratory voice and students repeat after each line.

  • Say (repeating terms slowly): Repeat after me.
    • B-E-S-T
    • I want to be the best I can be!


Ask students to try some of the partner challenges with a family member or friend at home. Encourage students to continue practicing the relay race with friends at recess time.
