I have included 5 different lesson plans for Physical Education. They are fun and interactive activities that will help your students learn and grow from their P.E. time. You could make the lessons compact to last only one day or you could stretch it out to span over multiple days.
Each lesson plan has three different variations to ensure that you can find the perfect match for your class. If you teach P.E. to different development levels, then there are plenty of options to cover all of your classes.
The lessons include:
-Tag games - Hospital Tag, Triangle Tag, and Steal the Bacon (These are three different tag games written as a developmental level three with ideas for development levels one and two.)
The lesson plans are brief. Here is an example of what one would look like.
This is the development level one Soccer Lesson Plan.
Developmental Level 1
Objective: Students will be able to kick a soccer ball the right way, using the inside of the foot and be able to do a basic trap when the ball is kicked to them.
Teaching Method: Mastery Learning and teamwork
Equipment and set-up: Cones to make a perimeter, soccer balls
Introduction and Warm up: One lap around the gym and stretching.
Focus Activity: Have one of the students kick the soccer ball. If he kicks it with his toe and it shoots off in a weird direction then use that as an example. Explain that you must not use your toe to kick because your toe is round at the tip and will send the ball in a direction that you can’t control. Explain that you must use the inside of your foot that is flat so you can control where it goes. Then explain that for better control the students must stop the ball with their foot before they kick it again. This is called a trap. Assign the students groups of four and have them practice kicking the ball in a circle around to everyone in their group.
Closure: Have each group form a line at one end of the gym, and then place a cone in the middle of the gym. Have the students’ see which group can knock the cone over first.
I hope you find these useful and fun activities to add to your P.E. Class. Happy Teaching!
