Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Students are in ready position and performing a quick shuffle step in place. They will shuffle left, right, forward, backward, over, and around obstacles on signal by the teacher’s hand motion.
Scattered formation in front of teacher.
Mark area with cones.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Walk, Jog, Sprint
Move to the following signals:
One whistle – walk.
Two whistles – jog slowly.
Three whistles – sprint under control
Long whistle – freeze and perform exercises.
Perform various strength and flexibility exercises between bouts of walk, trot, and sprint. Examples are:
Bend and Twist
Tape alternating segments of silence and music to signal duration of exercise. Music segments indicate aerobic activity (30-45 seconds) while intervals of silence announce flexibility and strength development activities (30 seconds).
Assure that students run under control (not as fast as they can) and in the same direction.
Encourage students to perform at a level they feel comfortable. Youngsters are genetically different and should not be expected to do the same amount of exercise repetitions.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
