Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Jumping Jack Tag
Everybody is it. The goal is to tag as many other players as possible before they tag you. If a player gets tagged, they must stop and do 10 jumping jacks. They can continue playing the game and tagging others.
After 30 seconds, stop the class and declare, “everybody is it.” That puts the entire class back in play.

Lesson Focus and Closing Activity(20-25 Minutes)
Teach and Discuss the Rules of Team Handball
Focus on the basic rules necessary to play the game. As students begin play, add a rule when the opportunity arises naturally.
Play Sideline Team Handball
Sideline handball can be played when space is limited, and the class is crowded. Extra team members spread out along each sideline. These sideline players can receive passes from teammates and can help pass the ball down the court. Sideline members can only pass the ball, however, and the three-second rule applies to them. One sideline is devoted to one team, and the other sideline to the other team.
