P.E. Central Lesson Plan: Mission "Possible" Fitness
Purpose of Activity:
To have students elevate their heart rate and practice fitness skills.
Suggested Grade Level:
3-5
Materials Needed:
Cones; art materials to make exercise cards; gymnastic mats (optional); Mission Impossible Movie Theme Song
Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

This activity allows students to work together to complete a list of exercises simultaneously. Divide class into six groups. Have each group set up at one of the designated cone (marked 1-6). Each cone will have a Mission Card beside it.

Example of a Mission Card

Mission #1: Complete The Following...

Gallop One Lap

30 Shoulder Touches

10 Rockers (need mat for this one)

10 Curl Ups

Grapevine One Lap

10 High Jumps

15 Step Ups (on stable bench or stairs)

V-sit stretch Left-Right-Middle (Hold for 10 sec. at each)

Your Mission Is Complete!

Students can start when they hear the music. You may want to give them a minute to figure out how they are going to do all the tasks together before starting the music. For the Mission to be completed each person in the group must do the activities simultaneously.

On the first day of teaching this you may want to review how someone who is a fast runner could change their speed to accomodate the whole group, give ideas of having a counter for each activity, a motivater, etc.

Teaching Suggestions:

After the warm-up do a self evaluation on how well they they thought they did. Have students rate themselves on how well they worked with their group members, did they help anyone else, and what their effort level was.

Variations:

Be creative with your cards. You can use motor skills such as throwing, kicking, or catching and/or incorporate dance/gymnastics activities.
