NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Hoops and Plyometrics
Each student rolls the hoop while running. On signal, the hoops are dropped. Challenge students to move in and out of a given number of hoops specified by color. State locomotor movement to use. Student then picks up the hoop and resumes rolling it.
Each student has a hoop and listens for instructions.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Jump and Jog Fitness
Set up five or six cones in a circle around the gym with two or three jump ropes at each cone. Students need to get a partner and start at one of the cones. One partner jumps rope at the cone, while the other partner jogs around the circle. Partners switch roles with the completion of each lap. Teachers can vary the student movement around the cones with the following: walk, jog, slide, do carioca steps, power skip, and perform butt kickers (heels hit the butt).
In the early stages of learning this routine, teachers can stop the action and lead the class in a strength or flexibility exercise.
When students understand how the routine is conducted, use music intervals to signal stopping the Jump and Jog and doing flexibility and strength exercises. The strength and flexibility exercises allow student to recover aerobically before getting back to jumping and jogging.
As students improve their rope-jumping skills, the teacher can vary the foot patterns with the following: two-foot basic step, jog step, side swings (left and right), jumping-jack step, ski jump step, scissors step, crossovers, and double jumps.
Lesson Focus and Closing Activity (20-25 Minutes)
