State Standard: 1, 2, & 4
|Equipment: Several cones, poly spots, different fitness equipment (dumbbells, medicine ball, jungle jims, jump ropes, and/or cup stacks), Mats, arrows, and cue cards.||Grade: 4-5 (Possible 3)|
|Purpose of Event: Endurance, Strength, and Fitness Concepts|
|Time: 20-25 minutes|
|Organization: Set-up several centers around the gym with either arrows or shoulder folders locating each station for the students. Have students sit in their battle-ship spots as I explain each fitness center. Once each center has been explained or demonstrated separate each students into groups of two partners and have them start at different centers.
Fitness Centers: On the signal, the students within their pairs will begin each workout labeled by the shoulder folder at each center. The following are some different ideas that I use for various fitness workouts (you can add more or change for whatever works for your students):
Variations: You can add or remove any exercises as you see fit that works for your students.
|Concerns: Move safely around the gym. Make sure students performing the exercises correctly and with proper technique. I also make sure that they are working well with their partners.|
