Task 5: Closure: I will


end class by handing out
the graphic organizer a
second time. Now that
students have completed
the tasks above, they
will be more familiar
with the correct cues that
have been instructed
throughout class. Now
students will fill out the
graphic organizer a
second time. After
students fill in the
graphic organizer, I will
go over the answers on
the white board by
filling in the organizer
using the correct data.
The blank graphic
organizer is at the
bottom of the page and I
will add the answers
below.

Students will be sitting


in front of me as they fill
out the graphic organizer
a second time.
Now they will be
looking and listening to
me when I review the
answers to the organizer
on the white board.

Can your fill out the


graphic organizer with
complete details at the
end of class?

The center resembles a partner pass and catch. The surrounding boxes represent the cues to a partner pass and catch. The answers I
will be looking for surrounding the red box will include head up, focus on partner when throwing and receiving, throw from ear to hip,

step with lead foot, absorb the ball when caught above, at and below waist and hands positioned in front of body and open to receive
the ball.
