Warm up:

Farmers and Lumberjacks: Spread a bunch of tall traffic cones (trees) around the workout space.   Assign half the class to be Farmers, who work to keep the cones upright (plant trees) and the other half of the class to be Lumberjacks who tip over the cones (cut down trees).  Recommended guidelines: only hands can be used to tip or stand up cones, kids switch roles at least once during the game.

Skill work:

Balance While Walking: Have athletes practice walking along a white line on the floor foot in front of foot without falling.  If they are able to practice balancing on the line a few times without falling, lay out a long rope and have them try balancing while slightly elevated.  Give each athlete at least one chance to balance along the rope.
