2 Clipboards, 2 task sheets, and 2 pencils per court
The student will:
Demonstrate the half lob serve as demonstrated by the instructor.
Participate in Addition Tag with the rest of the class as directed by the instructor.
NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
The task is to continuously move in a productive fashion that will warm up the group. One person begins as the leader. When a signal is given, a new leader steps up and leads the next activity.
Use Whistle Mixer to create groups of 3-5. The leader leads the group through any type of activity while the others follow until a new leader takes over.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Five or six fitness activities are arranged in the center (the Pit) of a large circle outlined with marking spots (the racetrack). If desired, tumbling mats can be placed in the center of the racetrack to delineate the pit stop area. Students work with a partner and alternate running (or doing other locomotor movements) around the racetrack and going to the pit to perform a strength or flexibility exercise. A different exercise should be performed each time, so students assure variety in their workout.
The following are some examples of exercises that can be used for Pit exercises.
Bend and Twist
Knee to Chest Curl
Intervals of 30 seconds of music with 10 seconds of silence can be used to signal role changes. The student who was running the track now goes to the pit to exercise and vice versa.
Assure that students run under control (not as fast as they can) and in the same direction.
Allow students to perform at a level they feel comfortable.
Students are genetically different and should not be expected to do the same amount of exercise repetitions.

The “its” hold hands and can tag only with their outside hands. When they tag someone, that person must hook on. This continues and the tagging line becomes longer and longer. Regardless of the length of the line, only the hand on each end of the line is eligible to tag.
