Individual gymnastics balances

A group of resource and task cards for individual gymnastics balances that students can use to select and accurately replicate balances for their routines. Useful in a lesson on balance or routines and great for independent work.

This is used in my Scheme of work for individual routines available here

Included in this resource:

  • A4 black and white page with approx 45 balances on for students to copy
  • Differentiated by colour A4 page with approx 45 balances on (green - easy, yellow - medium, red- hard, purple -challenging
  • An A4 page where the balances are grouped by difficulty
  • An A4 page where the balances are grouped by height (good for compositional work with students to get them to see the different between heights)
  • An A4 activity/task card with 7 different tasks students can work through independently - culminating in them creating a short sequence of their own.(editable and pdf versions)

Recommendations for the A4 page of 45 balances:

  • Give each student a copy of the resource
  • Give a group a copy and challenge them to match or mirror the balances
  • Ask students to pick a balance and change one of the leg or arm positions to create a new balance and show the class
  • Get students to adapt the balances for apparatus
