NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1-5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Give each group signs with numbers and an exercise. A student holds up a sign and the other students must perform the exercise. The number indicates how many of each. For example, “10” Jumping Jacks, “8” Sit ups.
Use Whistle Mixer to create groups of 4.
Create signs that have more than 2 movements on them to increase the challenge
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.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
