NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1, 2, 3, 5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Students are in ready position. They shuffle left, right, forward, backward, over, and around obstacles on signal by the teacher’s hand motion.
Scattered formation in front of teacher. Mark area with cones.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
On signal, each student will move around the perimeter of the perimeter of the area. As students pass a corner they change the movement they are doing based on the instructions posted on each cone. Examples of movements listed at each cone:
On signal or end of music interval, the movement stops and students perform a strength or flexibility activity curl-ups, reverse curl-ups, push-ups, windmills, jumping jacks, etc.
Set up a rectangle boundary with cones.
Use music for continuous motivation.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Underhand Serve: The nonracket shoulder is toward the receiver, and the racket is held waist high and behind the body. Keep the wrist cocked. The shuttlecock must be contacted below the waist at the instant of the serve. Either a forehand or backhand shot may be used, but the forehand is most common. Until the serve is delivered, the server and receiver must be in their legal service courts. Part of both players’ feet must remain in contact with the ground.
Demonstrate Serve: Students should use their shuttlecock and their partners to serve twice into the correct service court. Then change servers.
Demonstrate High Deep Serve
• Scattered formation. • Racquets and shuttlecocks around perimeter of teaching area. • Direct students to pick up a racquet and a shuttlecock and return to demonstration area. Shuttlecock placed on floor between feet. • Student practices serve motion in own space. • Use management technique “back-to-back” to make partners; Assign 4 students to each serving area. • Rotate positions on court. • Each student should serve 8 times per service court.
Formation: Entire class scattered with hoops spread through area
Supplies: 15 hoops
Students are challenged to get as many students as possible into one hoop placed on the ground. For a person to be considered “on board,” one foot must be touching the ground inside of the hoop and no body parts touching the floor outside the hoop. One technique to lead up to this activity is to play Musical Hoops. Hoops are scattered throughout the gym and music is playing. When the music stops students move to a hoop placing at least 1 foot inside the hoop. More than 1 student can be in a hoop. Each time the music plays the teacher removes 1 or 2 hoops until only enough hoops remain for all students to be aboard.
Evaluation/Review and Cheer
Ask students “What are the important parts of the serve?”
“Where should you serve from?”
“Where do you serve to?”
P.E., P.E., What does it mean? Pretty exciting physical education!
