Students can work individually or in a small group to develop a movement skills routine. The routines must contain skills learned in class, along with additional pre-approved skills as an option. The final would involve a presentation of the skills to the class.
Students will be able to perform a basic movement routine after learning and practicing specified skill sets.
Students will be able to collaborate with a group of their choosing, to put together a movement routine based on their knowledge and skill level.
A list of movement skill learned in class is displayed on the whiteboard. Paper and pencil to write out the movement skill order and other ideas to complete the task.
Anticipatory Set (Lead-in):
