Hey boys and girls. I hope everyone is doing fine and staying safe. Below is your Phys Ed Lesson for Grades 3-5 for Tuesday.
Warm-up- Go for a 15 minute walk (with a parent) or complete the following exercises: 20 jumping jacks, 5 burpees, 10 squats and 5 push-ups.
Skill- We have been working on overhand throw and catch the past few classes. Today I would like you to take a ball and find a wall to practice your throwing against. If you don't have a ball roll up a pair of socks or crumple a piece of paper. The steps are as follows:
1. Eyes at target and point non-throwing hand
2. Bring throwing hand around by your ear
3. Pull throwing arm in a downward motion (remember string light!) and step with opposite foot.
If you have a sibling or a parent that is willing to play catch with you it'll make your throwing practice even better.
Game- You will need a player to play against and four or five paper balls. This game is a "snow ball fight". Divide the room you are using in half and attempt to use your overhand throw to hit the other person with a paper ball. Each time you hit them you receieve a point. If you get hit that is the amount of jumping jacks you will have to complete at the end of the activity.
