Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Bean Bag Challenges
Toss the bean bag overhead and catch it
Try catching on different body parts, such as shoulder, knee, and foot.
Toss the bean bag, make a half-turn, and catch it.
Try making a different number of turns (full, double).
Toss, clap the hands, and catch. Try clapping the hands a specified number of times.
Clap the hands around different parts of the body.
Challenge students to make throws directly overhead. There should be a lack of running around trying to catch up to the beanbag.
Limit the height of throws in the early stages of warming up.
Avoid challenging the class to see how many claps or turns they can do. Teach students to self-challenge themselves to do their best.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Squad Leader Exercises
Suggested exercises to be placed on task cards:
Jumping Jack variations
Crab Kick combinations
If there is a delay in starting an exercise, the squad should walk or jog. This keeps students active while the leader is thinking of an exercise.
Divide the class into groups of four to five students. Each group is given a task card that lists eight to ten exercises. One of the group members begins as the leader and leads the group through an exercise. Each time an exercise is completed, the card is passed to a new leader.
Use alternating intervals of music to signal exercising (30 seconds) with silence (5-8 seconds) to indicate passing the card.
Encourage self-responsibility and the importance of being a leader.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Kickboxing Review Basic Movements from Lesson 1:
Punches and jabs
Boxer’s jog with bobbing, weaving, jabs and blocks.
Left jabs and right jabs
Left hooks and right hooks
Left uppercuts and right uppercuts
Left side kicks and right side kicks
Left roundhouse kicks and right roundhouse kicks
Left combo kicks and right combo kicks
Use an Aerobics Music for the Kickboxing routine.
Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
Two or more pairs are it with inside hands joined. These are the taggers. The other children run individually. The pairs move around the area, trying to tag with their free hands. The first child tagged joins the couple, making a trio. The three then chase until they catch a fourth. After catching a fourth child, the four divide and form two pairs, adding another set of taggers to the game. This continues until most of the players are tagged.
If pairs are having difficulty tagging other players, add more pairs and substitute out pairs in an unobtrusive way. Running in pairs is demanding and students will tire quickly.
