Split up into two groups:

Group 1:

Do a streamline with all three things. At surface kick in position 11. Put one arm at hips, keeping the other arm extended forward above the shoulder on the surface.

Take one breath to side, continuing to kick.

Look down again, and kick in position 1 for 5 more kicks. The goal is side breaths.

Group 2:

Set up the board into boxes that represent the number on a die. If you have 1 die, use 6 boxes. If you have 2 dice, do 2-12.

Fill the boxes with activities, and have swimmers roll the dice one at a time. Group, or lane does activity in the numbered box they do.
