This is a good warm up activity for grades 1-4.
I begin by having students list as many sports/games as they can. You could list the sports on a poster and hang it in your gym.
The students then individually decide which sports they will"play"
Put on some inspiring music-I use Rocky theme songs- Students pantomime their sport-Stop the music every 15 sec. students change to a new sport.
Repeat 4-5 x for a good warm up and a lot of fun.
Variations: Partner up and do a sport together(pitching-batting, tennis volleyball volleys etc.

Groups of 4- 2 students perform a sport, other 2 try to guess which it is. Swith roles
