NATIONAL STANDARDS: 1 – 5
Introductory Activity (2-3 Minutes)
Bean Bag Challenges
Toss the bean bag overhead and catch it Try catching on different body parts, such as shoulder, knee, and foot. Toss the bean bag, make a half-turn, and catch it. Try making a different number of turns (full, double). Toss, clap the hands, and catch. Try clapping the hands a specified number of times. Clap the hands around different parts of the body.
Challenge students to make throws directly overhead. There should be a lack of running around trying to catch up to the beanbag.
Limit the height of throws in the early stages of warming up.
Avoid challenging the class to see how many claps or turns they can do. Teach students to self-challenge themselves to do their best.
Fitness Development (8-12 Minutes)
Four Corners & Stretching Exercises
A large rectangle is formed using four cones as markers. Students move continually around the perimeter of the rectangle. At each corner, a different movement is performed. Examples of activity alternatives that can be performed on the long sides of the rectangle are jogging, power skipping, sliding, jumping, and hopping. On the short sides of the rectangle, movements requiring slower, more concentrated attention (for example, lunges and inchworms) can be performed.
Follow aerobic work with stretching activities such as Lower leg stretch; Balance beam stretch; Groin stretch; Cross-legged stretch; twisting; Standing hip bend, etc.
An interesting variation is to set up tumbling activities or tires and challenge students to go over, around, and through them. The need for continuous movement should be emphasized, and the rectangle should be large enough to provide a challenging workload for the cardiorespiratory system.
Use signs on cones that list the exercises, stretching, and aerobic activities students are to perform as they pass a cone. Place 2-3 activities on each cone so students have some choices of activities to do.
Lesson Focus (15-20 Minutes)
Forearm bump pass Demonstrate passing skill • Stance: shoulder width and square with the ball; hips and knees flexed. • Arm position. • When contact is made, bump the ball • Off of the lower forearms above the wrist.
Review Underhand Serving skills
Use management technique of: Toe-to-Toe with 3 people:
1 places hands on hips =DOER
1 places hands on knees =TOSSER/retriever
1 kneels on ground = OBSERVER
OBSERVER will observe t
he doer and give verbal feedback.
Repeat practice activity of yesterday.
Closing Activity (5 Minutes)
All Up, All Down Relay.
Three bowling pins are set in a small circle about 20 feet in front of each team. The first player runs forward and sets up the pins one at a time, using only one hand. The pins must stand. The next player puts them down again, and so on.
Constantly change teams so all students hope they get a chance to play on a winning team.
Evaluation/Review and Cheer
Students huddle together for review.
Teacher will review by asking students pertinent questions regarding elements of the lesson.
