Activity Description &Teacher Does (Materials/Equipment)
Describe what the teacher will do to implement instruction, strategies, formal & informal assessments, & differentiation (modifications & extensions) to develop language (syntax & discourse).
I will start off this activity by organizing the students into groups of two. I will then explain to the students that they will be working on their aerobic fitness.
I will then have students line up against the bleachers so that I can properly warm-up their leg muscles for today’s activity.
Jog across gym(Back and forth)
High Knees(Back and forth)
Butt Kicks(Back and forth)
Sprint(Back and forth)
I will then explain to the students how today’s activity is going to go. Each partner will be able to choose if they want to be #1 or #2. The 1’s will start off running counterclockwise around the track while the 2’s will be walking clockwise on the inside of the track. After 1 minute I will blow the whistle which you will have 10 seconds to find your partner, high five them, and switch places on the track. The goal of this activity is to reach a minimum of 10 laps after a set time. I will then bring you all in and have you add up the total number of laps that were completed from walking and running around the track and the group with the most laps will be declared the winner. We will then repeat this process one additional time.
The students will sit quietly as they are placed into groups of two.
The students will follow directions from the coach while the warm-up is being completed.
The students will sit their quietly and listen to the rules and procedures of today’s activity and may ask questions at the end.
