Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Move and Perform a Stretch
Students move throughout area in designated manner while the music is playing. When music stops, they stop and perform a stretching activity lead by teacher or selected student.
Bring students together in a scattered formation.
Use cones to designate activity area.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Three different “jackpots” (boxes) are filled with fitness exercises and activities are placed around the teaching area. One jackpot is filled with a variety of strength development activities written on small index cards. A second jackpot is filled with flexibility activities. The third jackpot contains aerobic activities. Students can work individually or with a partner. They begin at one of the jackpots of choice and randomly pick out an activity to perform. If with a partner, they take turns selecting the card from the box. The only stipulations are that they must rotate to a different box each time and cannot select an activity they previously performed. If they pick an activity they performed on a previous stop, they return it to the jackpot and select another.
