Warmup: Toy Story

Equipment and Setup:

  • The Music from the movie:  Toy Story Infinity and Beyond
  • Students spread out in Scatter Formation
  • You may want to set up cones to designate the area that you want the students moving around


  • The students first must chose which of the toys from the Toy Story movies they want to be.   Common choices are: Buzz Lightyear, Mr. Potato Head, Army soldiers, Woody, and Barbie. If they haven’t seen any of the movies, they can just chose the name of any toy.
  • Start the music and the Teacher  says, “All Clear”.
  • Now, the students begin moving around the gym as a character in the movie.
  • When the music stops and the teacher says,  “Andy’s coming”, students should freeze in position and continue to look like their character.
  • You may have students guess what character their classmates are imitating when they are frozen.
  • Continue stopping and starting with the “All Clear” and “Andy’s coming” signals.
  • You can change levels (low/high) or locomotor skills such as skipping, hopping, galloping, walking slowly, or running.
