This unit plan was initially designed for a grade 4 classroom but can be adapted for any of the intermediate grades with some modifications for increased skill sets. It primarily contains jump rope activities (individual jump rope, long rope, double dutch and Chinese jump rope) and ball games, but also includes ideas for additional activities that can be further expanded to meet curriculum goals.
The lessons have been designed to be repeated as needed until the students understand the concepts and can complete the activities. Each lesson should be spread out over a few classes. This unit plan will easily last over a month and could be stretched to two months if needed.
Included in the unit plan are checklists for assessment, activity posters to set up rotating centers and guidelines on how to teach certain activities.
The unit plan has goal indicators and curriculum standards that can be adapted to the meet the physical education requirements set out by any province or state.
