UNIT:
Volleying
LESSON #:
1 of 2
LESSON FOCUS:
two-hand passing (set) and bump
PREVIOUSLY LEARNT SKILLS:
overhand throw, underhand throw, softball
pitch, high and low catching techniques, spatial awareness, personal space, general space,
high-med-low levels
FACILITITES:
Blacktop/Grass
EQUIPMENT:
Volleyballs for each student

Student Learning Outcomes (SLO’s):
Psychomotor: SWBAT perform safe two-handed overhand passes and bump passes by
correctly executing the cues of the skill. SWBAT receive these passes and perform the
correct skill to return the pass
Cognitive: SWBAT discuss the strategies they implemented as individuals to make a
pass for accuracy towards target. SWBAT explain the importance of each cue of the
skill. SWBAT determine which pass is necessary to use
Affective: SWBAT include positive attitudes and spatial, as well as body awareness
concepts in this lesson in order to effectively accomplish the task(s). Effective traits can
include: smiling, high-fives, positive dialogue, encouragement, positive feedback for
strategies for safe and correct bumping and setting.
Health-related: SWBAT recognize the physiological responses to exercise and will be
engaged in MVPA for at least 50% of the lesson time.

Instant Activity: Simon Says
Time: 1 minute
Have students spread out on one side of the court or along a line. Instruct students that they
will be participating in Simon Says. Incorporate red light-green light, various locomotor
skills, and dynamic stretching/warm-up activities with this instant activity. Be creative and
fun!

Time: 4 minutes.

This is the partner set-up. Individual practice will be less organized as students will find
their own space to practice
Activity/COTS
Demo: Students will be instructed
on the cues of the skill for a bump.
Cues are knees bent, hand-in-hand
with thumbs together, arms
parallel to the ground, eye on the
ball, shrug.
1 min.
Explain to the students that they
will practice with themselves to
work on the skill then transition
into partners later in the lesson.

Class ends with high-fives on exit.

Assessment:
In addition to the systematic observations that will assess motor differences, time
spent in physical activity; you should spend this session assessing the affective skills
of your students and cultural differences you may see emerge. Take notes on the
following and include in your reflection journal:
- What languages did you hear the students speak?
- Who did the students partner with if given a choice?
- During ‘down time’ who did the students socialize with?
- Were the students able to work effectively and without conflict with their
partners/teams? If not, what factors seemed to be causing conflict?
- What evidence of teamwork/communication did you see? (e.g. high fives etc)
- Did the student’s request any activities/sports? If so, what were they?
- What role does Maria play? How do the students respond to her? Does their
3
behavior change when she is around?
- Did you learn anything about the student’s home life/background? If so, what?
