Flight

Purpose of Activities
The children will be using a variety of ways to get off the ground and into space or "flight." Giving the students a chance to explore the many possibilities of soaring through open space enhances their chances to select the appropriate and efficient way to apply this knowledge to sport and other activities.

Equipment
  • Gymnasium
  • Radio

    Formation
    (#ís 1,2 and 3)
    The students will be evenly separated while facing each other on a basketball court (one group will be on the half court line and the other on the baseline).

    Formation
    (#4,5,6 and 7)
    The second formation is scattered.

    Activities
  • Find away high five your partner by keeping both feet together. Then go back to the spot you came from the same way.
  • Students switch places with partner while one jumps like a frog and the other like a rabbit.
  • Do the same as the above except now switch animals movements with partner.
  • Three different ways you can go through space--lead with different body parts.
