Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

This activity works best in a gym or fenced in area. Before class, set goals up around the perimeter of the gym measuring approximately 10-15 feet apart. Students find a self-space with a soccer ball. The teacher will call out:

"Recess!": Dribble the ball in the general space.

"Razzle dazzle!": Hop back and forth from the left to the right foot lightly touching the ball with the bottom of each foot.

"Hi Teacher!": Trap the ball with the bottom of foot, face the teacher and say, "Hi Teacher!"

"Pirate!": Steal one ball from another student and continue dribbling. (No one should be left without a ball.)

"Bombs Away!": Dribble to a the closest goal and kick with strong force and accuracy into the goal.

Teaching Suggestions:

On "Bombs Away!", remind students to kick accurately without hitting classmates. Only kick toward the goal when you have a clear line of sight to the goal.
