NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
All students are it. When tagged, they must cover that area of their body with one hand. Students may be tagged twice, but they must be able to hold both tagged spots and keep moving. When a student is tagged three times, he must freeze.
Start the activity over regularly rather than waiting for all students to be tagged. The goal is moving and warming up rather than seeing who can avoid the tag.

Double Crab Kick / 30 seconds
Rope jumping—backward / 25 seconds

Use music segments (25 seconds) alternated with silence segments (30 seconds). When the music is playing, students jump rope; when silence occurs, students do a flexibility and strength development exercise.
Exercises can be done in two-count fashion. Exercises are done when the leader says “Ready.” The class answers “One-two” and performs a repetition.
Allow students to adjust the workload to their level. This implies resting if the rope jumping is too strenuous.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)

Distribute with pencils.
When each student is done they can go to a separate area to practice skills.
