Instant Activity: Dynamic warm-up: Students
will be standing on the sideline facing the

perform a dynamic activity i.e. jogging, high
knees, side-shuffle, monster walks, lunges,
back-pedal, etc.

Today we will begin the football unit,
specifically learning the basics of
stationary throwing and catching. Who
here knows why throwing a football is

I will number the
students by 2s. One
person on the line on
homebase and the
partner will stand on
a polyspot 15 feet
away.

Football Throwing/Catching: Football
* Diagram below
throwing cues: 1) laces, 2) athletic stance,
3) face sideways to target, 4) bring arm
back to ear, 5) extend and follow through.
Football catching cues: 1) Eye on ball, 2)
triangle with thumbs and index finger
together, 3) bring ball into body. Students
will partner up in 2s. One student will
stand on homebase while another
student will stand on a polyspot
approximately 15 feet away. Students on
homebase line will start with the football.
On my signal, students will throw a pass
to his/her partner. Receiver must be
ready to catch. Students will continue to
throw and catch until stop signal.

stopped and the students furthest from
one another are awarded the best arm.

Demonstration Plan:
Demonstration not needed as the activity
is the same.

Questions to Check Understanding
What happens when the receiver
successfully catches a pass?
Steps back
What happens when the receiver doesnt
catch a pass?
Steps forward

Adaptations
This activity automatically adapts to the
students needs. If a student doesnt catch
the football, the receiver steps forward. If
a student does catch the football, the
receiver steps back.



Transition: Students will assist in
collecting equipment and putting them
away. Students will return to home base
for lesson closure and sit quietly.
