Students will actively participate in the High Five Activity.
Demonstrate proper chip shot grip and stance as demonstrated by the instructor.
Students will learn the basic constructs of the chip shot.
NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1 – 5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Students move in different directions throughout the area. On signal, they are challenged to run toward a partner, jump, and give a “high five” (slap hands) while moving. Emphasis should be placed on timing so that the “high five” is given at the top of the jump.
Combinations of changing the level of the high five and changing the speed of the locomotor movement can be developed.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Parachute Fitness Activities
16 Runs clockwise 16 Runs counterclockwise 16 Jumps to center 16 Jumps back 8 count lift overhead 8 count lower to toes 4 count lift 4 count lower
Repeat all, but increase difficulty by holding chute overhead on CW run Release on last lift.
After the aerobic movements above have been learned, stop the music, and insert the exercises below.
1. Toe Touches: Lift chute taut to chin. Bend forward and touch grip to toes. Hold taut to chin. 2. Curl Ups: Curl-up, bend knees, lie back, extend legs. Repeat 16 times. Hold Parachute sitting position in a circle. Curl up, bent knees. Extended legs under chute and lie on back. 3. Dorsal Lifts: Prone position with head toward chute with arms straight and the chest taut. Lift arms and chest and hold for 4 counts. 4. Sitting Leg Lift: Sit with legs under chute; on signal lift a leg off ground for 6 to 10 seconds. Try to keep leg straight. Alternate legs. Try a variation: Side leg lefts. Lie on side. Lift top leg and lower.
“Run left” “Run right” “Jump to center!” “Jump back and tighten chute!” “Lift overhead!” (8 Counts.) “Lower to toes” “Again!” “Up! Down!” “Hold overhead and run left!” (32 Counts.) “Hold at waist and run right!” “Lift overhead!” (16 Counts.) “Lower to toes!” “Lift & Release!”
Jump rope is an excellent way to perform an aerobic exercise.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Note: There are many different approaches to teaching golf. These lessons offer an outline of essentials that need to be presented. We encourage you to contact some of the organizations that are designed to introduce golf to students. Here are a websites that may get you started:
The First Tee: Materials, curriculum, and instructional training are offered: https://firsttee.org/programs/. First Tee offers many training opportunities and also will help schools secure funding for program startups.
SNAG Golf: The acronym SNAG signifies Starting New At Golf. This is an innovative program with special equipment designed to teach golf in small spaces in the school setting. A key element of the program is that it offers many simple techniques and equipment that simplify the game: https://www.snaggolf.com
Chip Shot Each student gets a 7 iron Demonstrate grip. Demonstrate stance: Forward foot open toward target Demonstrate swing Practice swing aiming at target Hit balls to target Repeat practice Count # balls stopping close to target Complete activity.
Explain purpose of the chip shot. Practice grip. Practice stance. Have students spread out to safe location to swing. Set cones approximately 10’ from chipping area. Cones mark the target. Have students get balls. Signal to retrieve balls. Try to have ball stop rolling close to cone. Collect equipment.
Typically, golf courses have 18 holes and involve shots that require the full swing, chipping, and putting.
Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
Hula Hoop Circle Pass
Place a hula-hoop over the clasped hands of two members of each circle. On signal – pass the hoop around the circle without releasing handgrips.
Use Whistle Mixer to form groups formed in circles.
Approximately 5 per group. Members of each group hold hands and step through the hoop as they move it around the circle.
Hula hoops used to be made from grapevines and stiff grasses.
Evaluation/Review and Cheer
Review elements of the swing. What does the word Parachute mean? Name one aerobic exercise performed today. What was the hula hoop made from before plastic? Students create cheer
