1. Knobbed Cylinder
a. Title – Knobbed Cylinder (diameter & height increases) block ‘A’
# materials-mat,(wooden knobbed cylinder) block ‘A’
1)lay out the mat on the floor slowly and smoothly on the correct way.
2)bring the knobbed cylinder comfortably in such a way that the base is lying just below the chest level.
