Magic Carpet Ride Activity

This activity is designed for the younger participants (Kindergarten to 3rd) for using their imagination and creating setting and space.  Contrary to the name, no carpets are necessary.  This activity has been built into a complete lesson for both the Kindergarten ages and the 1st grade.  This can be done as a stationary activity or have fun moving around with them to combine with physical activity.
