Improve your students ball handling skills!
The following material is based on the concept of the Heidelberg ‘Ball School’ and can be used in primary and middle school to improve ball skills.
The material consists of 20 cards. Those cards represent movement tasks with different balls which are supposed to be performed as partner workouts. In the sense of a cross-game mediation concept, the tasks should improve the feeling as well as the coordination with a ball. To count the accomplished cards or to work through as many task cards as possible can serve as an incentive for extrinsic motivation.
Whether in preparation for the great role models such as handball, football, basketball, volleyball, or for smaller games such as ‘prison ball’, ‘Dodgeball, etc., the basic skills and abilities to work with a ball should become the main learning objective, particularly in primary and lower grades of middle school.
