NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Students move across the teaching area with a partner and avoid the taggers in the middle of the floor. If tagged, the partners trade places or stay in the middle to make it more difficult for others to cross the area.
If partners lose their grip, they must stay in the middle and become taggers.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Walk, Jog, Sprint
Move to the following signals:
One whistle – walk.
Two whistles – jog slowly.
Three whistles – sprint under control
Long whistle – freeze and perform exercises.
Perform various strength and flexibility exercises between bouts of walk, trot, and sprint. Examples are:
Bend and Twist
Tape alternating segments of silence and music to signal duration of exercise. Music segments indicate aerobic activity (30-45 seconds) while intervals of silence announce flexibility and strength development activities (30 seconds).
Assure that students run under control (not as fast as they can) and in the same direction.
Encourage students to perform at a level they feel comfortable. Youngsters are genetically different and should not be expected to do the same amount of exercise repetitions.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Throw the Frisbee at different levels to partner.
Throw a curve–to the left, right and upward. Vary the speed of the curve.
Throw a bounce pass–try a low and a high pass.
Throw the disc like a boomerang. Must throw at a steep angle into the wind.
Throw the Frisbee into the air, run and catch. Increase the distance of the throw.
Throw the Frisbee through a hoop held by a partner.
Encourage catching with left and right hands.
Since a Frisbee is somewhat different from the other implements that students throw, devote time to teaching form and style in throwing and catching. Avoid drills that reward speed in throwing and catching.
Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
Frisbee Three Passes
The object of the game is for one team to make three consecutive passes to three different players without losing control of the frisbee. This scores 1 point. The defense may play the frisbee only and may not make personal contact with opposing players. No player can take more than three steps when in possession of the frisbee or it is a turnover to the other team.
Place students in teams of 5.
Assign teams to play each other and an area they are to remain in during play.
Evaluation/Review and Cheer
Discuss elements of a quality throw.
Discuss the elements of a successful catch.
Discuss best practices (strategy) for completing three consecutive passes.
