This is a one-day lesson intended to fill a 60-75 minute class period. It is intended to review basic safety and sanitation principles with students as well as extend learning into deeper topics. This lesson is intended to be a review, but also to fill in gaps in student learning and understanding. The worksheet aspect is so that students have a tangable take-away from the activity. It also slows them down and makes them absorb the information more.
In this lesson plan, students will learn the benefits of social skills, health, and wellness they can get from physical activity through a game of "Hoops and Dots."
Students will investigate the interactions between colliding objects using pushes and pulls. After listening to the book, Push and Pull by Charlotte Guillian, students will play a game of kickball and observe how the ball is pushed, pulled, started, stopped, collided with other objects and how it changed position and speed. As a group, students will then brainstorm about other objects being pushed, pulled or colliding and choose one of those objects to investigate. This lesson is part of a bigger unit based on this Performance Expectation and items not addressed in this lesson are addressed in other lessons.
