batons, 16 star poly spots, 12 poly spots, 4 batons,
lots of cones

# Of students: 20 students
Safety Considerations: The teacher will conduct
the lesson in a quality-learning environment.
Students will be seated while listening to the
teacher reviews the rules and expectations of
all students in the class. Students will be
advised to participate in a safe and friendly
manner at all times. The teacher will have
knowledge of all students health related
issues based on a permission slip that will be
signed and dated by the parent(s)/ guardian(s)

dress attire for the activity. Those who are not
properly dressed will be seated in the
bleachers and complete an assignment that
should last the duration of the class. Students
will be aware of the teacher’s cues (whistle
blowing) to stop and start each activity,
waiting for further directions.

Lesson Specifics
Behavioral Contingencies: Students will be expected Previously Learned Skills: Students will need to have
to actively participate during the lesson. If students

head.

Teaching Strategy: In this lesson, the students will be
put into groups of 4. I will give the students 20
seconds to pick their partners. If partners are not
chosen I will match them up. This lesson is intended
to last for a long period of time with repetition while
providing. I will start the lesson using the command
style teaching strategy. Using an interactive
approach and verbal cues to assist the students in
understanding the techniques that will be used
during the activities will provide the instruction.

Student
Objectives:

Academic Language: The primary academic
language being addressed will be the cues of the
skill. The key terms used will be:
- Arms - Heart Rate
- Stand tall
- Relax
- Breathe
These terms will be used when talking about running
form and how our heart rate is affected during
activity.

Psychomotor (P): Students will be able to use proper running form and demonstrate proper
breathing techniques to keeping the heart rate elevated 70% of the time when participating
in a relay/obstacle race. SWBAT demonstrate the COTS for the standing long jump and the
modified shot put 80 % of the time.
Cognitive (C): Students will be able to correct other individuals on their technique with 70%
accuracy. The students will understand the lifetime benefits of fitness The students will
understand the importance of target heart rate. The students will understand the difference
between aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
H-R Fitness (H): Students will be engaged in moderate to vigorous physical activity at least
65% of the time.

The most important thing about
running is your breathing and working
on your form. (Arms, body posture,

The student will then run back to and
tag their partner's hand and that partner
will begin. This will continue until
time to rotate
We can build on this by having an
additional round where rather than the
student running back; they must go
through the obstacle course again to
get back.
