NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Students stand back-to-back with a partner along the center line. Each partner jumps and counts to three, then turns and shows surfer (hands out like riding a wave), shark (hands above head like a fin), or wave (hands above head rounded to front). Shark eats surfer, surfer rides the wave, and wave overtakes the shark. Whoever wins runs back to their sideline while the partner chases. If the winner makes it across line without being tagged, he or she earns a point. If the chaser tags the partner before crossing line, he or she earns a point.
Get back-to-back with a partner
Practice the surfer, shark, and wave poses and make clear who wins in the one-on-one contest.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Rabbit in the Hat Fitness
Various fitness activities are written on index cards and then placed in a “hat” (shoe box). The shoe box can then be placed at the center of the gym or at another convenient place for students to pick up and return the cards. Students can work alone or with a partner. Partners take turns selecting the fitness card from the box. Following are some suggested fitness activities:
Dribble the basketball down and back up the length of the gym.
Do a crab walk across the width of the gym.
Jog and shake hands with eight different people. Tell them to have a good day.
Perform two layup shots at three different baskets.
Slide to the drinking fountain and get a drink.
Do carioca steps around the basketball court two times.
Perform a mirror drill with a partner for 30 seconds.
Jog over and tell your teacher that physical education is a fun activity.
Perform three partner resistance exercises with a different partner.
Using Whistle Mixer, make groups of 5 – 6 to begin at each station.
Music can be programmed on a playlist for 30-second intervals to structure the transitions for students. A 10-second interval without music signals getting a new card. Students then perform as many repetitions as possible while the music is playing. This method allows more individualization for students with varying fitness and skill abilities. Students should be challenged to do as many activities as possible and try to improve as the units continue.
