NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Students find a partner. Under control, one partner runs, dodges, and tries to lose the other, who must stay within 3 feet of the runner. On signal, both stop and freeze. Chasers must be able to touch their partners to say that they have marked them. Partners then change roles.
Allow a point to be scored only when they touch a specified body part (i.e., knee, elbow, left hand).
Clarify it is not a tag game but rather shadowing your partner. Allow one giant step in any direction to see if they can “mark” their partner.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Allow students to select a workout that has been previously learned. Put emphasis on self-direction and a balanced routine.
Motivate students with music
Student choice is an opportunity to allow students to select music they want to use for their workout. They can listen to it on headphones while exercising.
