Project Title: Grade 4-5 Basketball Unit

Standards Met:
ASIJ Physical Education (Accompanying Student Learning Outcome in parenthesis) Demonstrate competency in many movement forms and proficiency in a few movement forms. (Self-Directed, Productive Learners) Apply movement concepts and principals to the learning and development of motor skills. (Literate Individuals) Demonstrates the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical activity and fitness. Understand that physical activity provides opportunities for enjoyment, challenge, selfexpression, and social interaction. (Self-Directed, Productive Learners) Student NETS: Communication and Collaboration - Studetns use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others: Interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital media and formats. Communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats. Contribute to project teams to produce original works or solve problems.

Enduring Understanding:
1. Basketball is an excellent example of a lifetime activity that can help us to improve our hand-eye coordination, agility, and cardiovascular fitness levels. 2. Fitness testing is important to help us set goals and improve our health levels. 3. Using Google Drive will help students to document and demonstrate their learning and share easily with teachers and parents.

Essential Questions:
1. Why is it important to dribble with both the right and left hands? 2. How can we demonstrate good sportsmanship in games? 3. Why are both tracking skills and using peripheral vision important in basketball? 4. What is offense and what is defense? 5. How does fitness testing help us to check our fitness levels? 6. How does using Google Drive allow us to collaborate and create as a community?

GRASPS Task: Goal: Students will use a shared Google

Document to record fitness scores and reflect on strengths, weaknesses, and how their growth on some of ASIJs student learning outcomes.

Six Facets of Understanding: Explain: Students will be able to explain the

difference between offense and defense.

Interpret: Students will be able to set

reasonable goals by viewing their scores and

Role: The student is the participant. The

teacher is the on-line expert giving feedback on the Google Doc.

comparing them to a database of average scores.

Apply: Students will take skills covered in class

(dribbling, passing, shooting, offensive principles and defensive principles) and apply them to lead-up basketball games and activities. Have perspective: Students will understand that games like basketball and exercising helps us to maintain our fitness throughout our entire lives.

Audience: Peers, parents, and teacher. Situation: During the basketball unit
students will be completing three fitness tests. Using a shared Google Doc they will record scores and reflect on the results.

Product: Students will have a completed

document that is shared on their Google Drive. Results from the three tests will be recorded and goals will be set for our Spring testing. Students will also reflect on their results and how they feel they are doing in regards to some of our Student Learning Outcomes. Using Hapara, the teacher will be able to access the students drive and comment on their Fitness goals as well as skill video that will be later posted.

Empathize: During our fitness testing and goal

setting, students will be constructive community members by respecting the differences in each others abilities as well as having a clear sense of their self.

Have self-knowledge: Students will

understand what their individual strength and weaknesses are in regards to fitness and will reflect on that on their Google Document. Also, during our skill work in basketball students will be able to self-evaluate their ability to determine what areas they need to improve.
