Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Fitness Scavenger Hunt
Students work together in teams or small groups. The teams stay together and hunt within the exercise area of the gym or field space.
Examples of entries that can be used on the exercise sheet:
Run to each corner of the gym and perform 25 curl-ups. All team members work together.
Run to the open set of bleachers and perform 25 step-ups on the first row. The count should be “up, up, down, down,” with the steps.
Do carioca steps to each of the other groups and tell them they are doing a good job.
Jog to the tumbling mats and perform two sitting stretches; hold each for eight counts.
Run and find the short jump ropes. Complete 25 jumps at a fast-time pace.
Jog and touch five walls, two different red lines, and three different black lines. Stay together with your group.
Jog to the “Jumping jacks” sign and perform 25 jumping jacks with at least four different variations in arm or foot patterns.
The teams are given a laminated sheet or card that lists the area to find and the activities to perform at the designated area. The sheets could have 8 to 12 activities, depending on how long the fitness segment of the lesson is going to last.
Assign each team a different starting point to ensure that students are spread across all areas and that a backup of students does not occur at one of the fitness areas.
When teams complete their tasks, they continue walking around the area and cooling down.
