Teaching Strategy: As this lesson is an exposure

closely monitored and assisted throughout the
activity. As they get more comfortable with basketball
we may progress more into a constructivist approach.

We are going to play four
corners today! Everyone
will jog around the outside

and stick with it. I will pick
a different exercise for
each cone and after I roll
the big dice, we will see
how many times we have
to do each exercise.
