NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Vanishing Bean Bags
Spread beanbags throughout the area to allow 1 per student. Students move around the area until a signal is given. On the signal, they find a beanbag and sit on it. Each round, direct a new locomotor movement task and take away a beanbag.
Specify different body parts to be placed on the beanbags.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Students do the best they can at each station within the time limit. This implies that not all youngsters are required to do the same workload. Students differ and their ability to perform fitness workloads varies. Make fitness a personal challenge. Rope Jumping Push-Ups Agility Run Lower Leg Stretch Juggling Scarves Curl-Ups with Twist Alternate Leg Extension Tortoise and Hare Bear Hug
Conclude circuit training with 2-4 minutes of walking, jogging, rope jumping or other self-paced aerobic activity
Tape alternating segments of silence and music to signal duration of exercise. Music segments (begin at 35 seconds) indicate activity at each station while intervals of silence (10 seconds) announce it is time to stop and move forward to the next station.
Use signals such as start, stop, and move up to ensure rapid movement to the next station.
Ask students to do their personal best they can. Expect workloads to differ.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
“I Spy” Walking Challenge
Identify all of the makes of cars you see on your walk.
Identify all of the colors of the cars you see.
List as many different birds you see on the walk.
List as many different animals you see on the walk
How many people did you walk by?
Distribute “I Spy” Challenge Cards
Explain perimeters of walking course
Use whistle mixer to make ever groups
Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
Over and Under Ball Relay
Players take a straddle position in lane formation. The first player hands the ball overhead with both hands to the player behind, who in turn hands the ball between her legs to the next player. The ball goes over and under down the line.
Form relay teams of 4-6 players on each team. This is an excellent relay for all students because it doesn’t require speed or quickness.
If one teams wins multiple times, create new teams.
Evaluation/Review and Cheer
What is the value of walking for health? Have one student from each group report on what they wrote on their challenge cards. Was there a common car most people saw? What was the main animal passed on the walk? How did your steps compare today to the number you took yesterday during the lesson focus?
