Take some time for some exercise!
1. Spread the mats around the room and have each student choose
a mat to stand on. Make sure at least one of every color mat
2. Roll all three cubes and call out what is rolled. Have students follow
the directions on the cubes. For example, if you roll jumping jacks,
3, and red, then everyone on a red mat will do three jumping jacks.
3. If you roll the side of the color cube with all colors, then it is an ALL
PLAY and all players do the exercise.
Alternate Versions of Play:
• Only use the exercise and number cubes and have the whole class
or small group do all exercises.
• Only use the exercise and color cubes and call out any number you
want. Most exercise sets are about 10–15 repetitions.

Learning Resources manufactures a wide range of award-winning toys and learning aids for children from two to twelve years. Most of our customers are teachers (or other educational practitioners) but many are also parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles; in fact anyone who wants to make a positive difference to a child's growth and development. Our company started in King's Lynn in Norfolk in 1994 in response to demand from European customers for the products made by our parent company Learning Resources Inc. of Vernon Hills, Illinois. For more than thirty years our American colleagues have been developing quality educational products that make learning exciting for children of all abilities. Together we create hands-on products that build a concrete foundation of skills through exploration, imagination and fun.
Of course all of our products conform to all European safety standards so during the years Learning Resources has become The Brand Teachers Trust supplying teachers with educational products for early years education, maths and literacy learning, phonics (letters & sounds), reading, science, personal, social & health education (PSHE), and English as an Additional Language (EAL).
Situated in the historic town of King's Lynn in the fine county of Norfolk, Learning Resources is a pleasant train journey from London, an hour's drive from Peterborough, Cambridge or Norwich and a stone's throw from the Queen's winter residence at Sandringham. She seldom visits us (OK, has never visited us) but you are welcome, just let us know you're coming!
Learning Resources is the proud distributor of Educational Insights and Green Toys ranges.
