Welcome to our Cartwheel Carnival Lesson Plan! Cartwheels are great for teaching laterality - the ability to move sideways in a lateral plane. That's an important aspect of a child's learning to read. When in life do we walk or move sideways? That's right... Never. It's also an agility drill that can be used later in other sports. A cartwheel is a skill both boys and girls want to learn. Nothing is more fun for a child than to say to their Grandma, "Watch me do my cartwheel!" Muscle focus: Heart.
