Speedball with a Pin lesson Plan
State Standards/ Goals for learning:
Students will come in to class, girls will stand on the east sideline arm length away from each other and the boys will stand on the west sideline arm length away from one another.
Students will be greeted and asked to do 2 dynamic warm-ups, 1 static stretch, and two exercises. After each activity they will be asked to identify the type of exercise, stretch, or warm-up each are by teacher survey. (Example… students give a thumbs up if they think the jumping jack is a ___________ exercise, etc….)
Once the warm-up is complete the students will be given a quick review on what we are playing and then they will be separated into their teams and courts for game play. (We will be at the very end of this unit so the students should know all or most of the basic rules to the game.)
Students will be reminded that they need to keep good spacing throughout the game and that when they are on defense they are not allowed to guard the ball.
Mr. Dees will start the south court with a jump ball and Mr. Vincent will start the North court with a jump ball. From here Mr. Dees and Mr. Vincent will officiate each court but will act more as a facilitator and will have the players make the majority of the calls. If there is a argument the students will be reminded that “rock, paper, scissors” is used to resolve conflict.
Basic Rules of Speedball:
With about 1 minute left the students will be asked to have a seat, the teacher will let them know how they did (positives/things to work on). Next week’s unit will be introduced and the students will be sent over to the south baseline to line up for their teacher.
Entire gym floor
Vests for all 4 teams
Sometimes the classes are sent down late and I have straggling students. If this happens we may skip some of the warm – up activity and move right into the speedball game.
