Gross Motor Activity Plan





Gross Motor Activity Plan

The learning experience of this activity is helping the baby to go from the belly to sitting on its own. The child in the experiment is a baby who is about six and a half months old.


This activity is an integral part in the child’s development. It will help the child learn how to crawl and eventually walk on his or her own. The child is currently at level four of development. This exercise was inspired by the child’s need to reach out to a toy that I held out. The child’s movement was indicative of the requirement to move from sitting to the belly in order for it to crawl.


Connecting With Families in the Activity

Ask parents to come along with their babies for practical experiments and lessons on how to help the baby. They should also ensure they have their children’s toys of preference during the exercise in order to make sure the child remains attentive throughout.

How to Prepare

Materials Needed/ Equipment:

Carpets and Toys


Large room with smooth floors

Time needed for activity:

1 hour

How to teach:

Welcome the parents and provide them with instructions and purpose of the exercise. To ensure the children remain attentive, I will use colorful toys and some soft background music


Steps Examples of verbal support
clap softly and hold out the toy for the child Call out the child’s name and makes sounds to show them the toy
Place the toy a slight distance form the baby call out the baby’s name and clap softly to show them where the toy is


It will be time to end the activity when the children begin to either roll over or crawl towards the objects. To end the activity, I will instruct the parents to continue with these exercises at home. To test if the children learnt from the activity, I will ask the parents to repeat the exercise one more time to observe if the children have grasped the concept of movement through crawling.
