Print out and laminate each of the cards from the PowerPoint. Divide your class into small groups and hand out one of the Group Exercise Example Routine Cards to them. The group members will look at their exercise routine card and will perform the exercises on it together. The routine cards have pictures of the exercise on it so the students know what it looks like and it also has the required number of repetitions and/or seconds the exercise needs to be done for.
The exercises on the card are also color-coded. Exercises with red background are cardiorespiratory endurance exercises. Exercises with green backgrounds are flexibility exercises. Exercises with blue backgrounds are muscular strength/muscular endurance exercises.
3rd grade cards have only 6 different exercises on them. 4th/5th grader cards have 9 different exercises on them. Students will start together at exercise #1 on their card and will do the exercise together, counting out the specified number of repetitions and/or seconds to do the exercise for. Once that exercise is complete, they will immediately go and begin exercise #2 together. The group will continue this pattern until they complete all the exercises in order on their card.
Give the students a few minutes to work through the card. They should be able to get through the card once (hopefully twice) AND to start to make the connections about which exercises on their card fall into which area of fitness. Group members are encouraged to not only discuss which exercises match up with which fitness component, but also group members can quiz each other if they have enough time left over.
When you feel like it is time, stop the students and have them trade cards using the charts in the PowerPoint. By the end of class, each group should have gotten each of the exercise routine cards (4th/5th completed all 4 different cards, 3rd completed all 6 different cards).
