NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Place two cones about 5 yards apart. A student stands in the middle and shuffles quickly back and forth between the cones, touching the cone each time. Students try to make as many touches as possible in 15 seconds. Set up enough pairs of cones so that all students can participate simultaneously.
Teacher or student leader directs the direction of shuffling
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Continuity exercises can be done in squad formation or scatter formation. Performers alternate between rope jumping and exercises. Rope jumping is done for timed episodes with music to help maintain the rhythm. At the signal to stop rope jumping, students quickly drop the rope and move into position for the exercise. Selected exercises can be performed in a down position with a leader who says, “Ready,” and the students respond, “One-two,” while performing the exercise. For each repetition, students wait until the command “Ready” is given. Students are allowed to monitor their own speed and intensity.
Scatter formation Ropes around perimeter of teaching area Jump when music playing Direct the exercises when music stops. The following are examples of exercises to use.
Side leg lifts
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Archery Aiming Review

Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
Two or more pairs are it with inside hands joined. These are the taggers. The other children run individually. The pairs move around the area, trying to tag with their free hands. The first child tagged joins the couple, making a trio. The three then chase until they catch a fourth. After catching a fourth child, the four divide and form two pairs, adding another set of taggers to the game. This continues until most of the players are tagged.
If pairs are having difficulty tagging other players, add more pairs and substitute out pairs in an unobtrusive way. Running in pairs is demanding and students will tire quickly.
