Holiday Compositions using Gym Equipment

This was a fun and creative lesson the very popular gym teacher at my school did with the kids during the last week of classes before the holidays. 

He laid in the center of the gym lots of different equipment. Students were put into groups of about 4 and had to go up one at a time and take one object and then work as a group to make a holiday composition. The were allowed a certain number of items in total; if they wanted something different they had to go back and exchange one of their pieces :)  
It was really sweet watching the kids work together to make their compositions. 

This is a sled with the presents in the bag :)
