  Rules to participating in parachute activities: Parachute Introduction. We will use overhand grip for most of our activities. Palms down for handling chute There will be 1 large parachute for �Chute Shapes. The activity starts with students using overhand grip and we will �Shake, Rattle, and Roll to become familiar with using the chute. Students will be given directions raise parachute above their head and lower the parachute when told to do so. When students hear �down� they will slowly pull the chute down to the floor in front of them to create a Low Dome. Students will repeat activity to see how large they can make a low dome. � Move and Groove� Students will hold chute with their �R� hand and be ready to move in a large circle. Walk slowly at a medium level Turn, change hands, and walk in the other direction. Jog slowly then skip slowly. Continue changing locomotor skills.
 Students will begin playing Chute Shapes and Move and Groove. After the first activity with the chute, the teacher will answer any questions or provide further explanation and/or demonstration as needed
