Methods and Factors Of Selecting Teams

Teams are picked by the teacher prior to the beginning of the unit. The teacher picks
the teams based on a number of factors such as gender, race, athletic ability, fitness
level, leadership ability, attendance, and social ability. By dividing students of different
genders and different races, you force students to interact with people they may not be
interacting with on a daily basis. By mixing the teams up athletically and by fitness level,
you assure each team will be of close skill so that all students have an equal chance to
succeed. If a team gets too strong, students won't learn as much because they will be
too focused on losing. The teacher will try to put all different types of people (leaders,
followers, boys, girls, white, black, etc) on each team.

Skills Challenges
Accuracy Challenge

5 sets of squares will be taped around the gym. Each set will have a large box, a
medium sized box, and a small box. Each team will send one person from their group to
each set of boxes to represent their team / country. This will put 6 people at each set of
boxes. One by one, students will take turns trying to hit a box. The smallbox is worth 5
points, the medium box is worth 3, and the large box is worth one point. Students will
keep track of how many points they have and report them to one individual keeping
score at each station. Once all students have gone, the sheets will be collected to
determine a overall winner. The student who comes in first place at their station gets
their team 6 points, 2nd place 5, 3rd place 4, etc. The team with the highest combined
score is the winner.


Consistency Challenge

Each team of 5 will chose 4 people to represent their country in the consistency
challenge. Each team will make 2 groups of two and stand inside a box of cones that
are located in the gym / field. Each box will be about 3 yards x 3 yards. The students on
one side of the grid will begin by throwing to their partner. The partner recieving the
throw must catch the pass within their 3x3 box, or else that team must sit down and is
eliminated. Each partner will throw the disk one. With the tems remaining, the team one
one side will take their front two ones and move them three yards behind the back two
cones. (backing up the row by 3 yards). The students will each throw once again until
there is only one team left standing. This game will be played three times, with a new
person sitting out every time. After the three games, the winners of each game will play
in a final to determine the winner. If the same team won twice, than the two winners will
face off. If the same team won all three times, that team will be crowned champion!


Frisbee Golf Challenge:

5 Hula hoops will be placed around the outside field with coresponding start points.
(green hula hoop will have a start point of the green cone, etc). Students will send one
member of their team to each one of the 5 start points to begin the game. Students will
take turns throwing their disks until everyone is able to get their disk into the hulahoop.
The group will then move to the next hole, and the student with the lowest score at the
end will win! The student with the lowest number will get their team 6 points, 2nd lowest
5, etc, and the country with the highest number of points will be the team champion.

Team USA Wins It All

This week, at Schmid High School, team USA in Mr. Schmids Period 1
physical education class took home the gold with their outstanding
performance on the field. Not only was this team's performance incredible,
but this team had an outstanding attitude and embrace every minute of
every class. Coach Ronnie for team USA was thrilled with his teams
victory. After the post season, I sat down with Ronnie and talked to him
about his teams performance. Ronnie said our team was just made up of
a lot of different people. There weren't a lot of star athletes that just wanted
goals; it felt like we had the perfect group. We had people who wanted to
score points but we also had players that liked to play defense. The best

part was everyone worked hard. We were able to motivate all the players
on the team and everyone gave their best effort. Ronnie was certainly
right. This team did an amazing job this season and came out successful
due to the selflessness and hard work of everyone on the team.
How good was my sportsmanship?

The goal of this season was to have everyone be motivating, show good
sportsmanship, and embrace what the sport education model is all about. Students
were expected to follow directions, be attentive, and try to have enjoy one of the most
exciting units of the year! Below, evaluate your own effort to see how well you did with
your sportsmanship and effort.
