NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1 – 5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Fastest Tag Ever
All students are it. On signal, they try to tag each other. If they are tagged, they must freeze, but they are eligible to tag other students who pass near them. If two or more players tag each other simultaneously, they are both/all “frozen.”
Get all students quickly involved in the activity. Restart the game often rather than waiting for all students to be tagged.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Students do the best they can at each station within the time limit. This implies that not all youngsters are required to do the same workload. Students differ and their ability to perform fitness workloads varies. Make fitness a personal challenge.

Conclude circuit training with 2-4 minutes of walking, jogging, rope jumping or other self-paced aerobic activity
Tape alternating segments of silence and music to signal duration of exercise. Music segments (begin at 35 seconds) indicate activity at each station while intervals of silence (10 seconds) announce it is time to stop and move forward to the next station.
Use signals such as start, stop, and move up to ensure rapid movement to the next station.
Ask students to do their personal best they can. Expect workloads to differ.
