Travelling to Dodge


Physical: dodge the person trying to tag you, reaction time, upper and lower limb coordination, agility

Cognitive: selective attention, visual processing

Social: awareness of personal space

Number of participants:

1 or more


Obstacles: carpet squares, cones or ropes


  1. on the signal to begin, children travel around the space without touching any obstacles or any other participants
  2. slowly increase the speed of the game

Modifications to make the activity easier:

Change the environment: have fewer obstacles for the child to dodge to decrease physical demand

Modifications to make the activity harder:

Change the environment: increase the number of children completing the activity so the child has to dodge more obstacles and children to increase physical and social demand

Goal examples:

  • I will be able to dodge 4 out of 5 obstacles/ friends when running to a target end zone, while using my headphones to dampen some of the gym noise
  • I will avoid bumping into my friends while running from one end of the gym to the other
