Description of how the game can be used to fit the categories: The game Pop Goes Froggio is a fun game for players to practice gross motor skills. In order to play the game, players must spin the wheel and then bend down to find the matching character lilypad on the ground. After they find the correct character, they must stomp on the lilypad to make froggio fly into the air to ultimately catch him. The bending and reaching, along with running, stomping and catching are all gross motor skills. Body scheme is incorporated into this game as the player must know where they are in the environment with the lilypads on the ground and where they must be in the environment in order to catch froggio after they launch him. Eye/hand coordination is involved in this game because the player must launch froggio in the air and then catch him in order to get points after they find the correct character. Response speed is important in this game because players must be the first to find the matching character lilypad and then be able to respond to the launching of froggio into the air quickly.
