Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

There are 12 stations. Divide class into 12 groups (if there are 36 students, 3 per station). Listed below are the station numbers, the equipment needed and the performance tips (i.e., cues) for each station.

Each group will start at a different station. Take 5 minutes to explain all of the stations (have the students walk from station to station with you while you demonstrate skills). Students have 30 seconds at each station and 15 seconds to put there equipment away and get to the next station and begin. They will go around the stations twice. Students will check their heart rate at the beginning of the class and at the end of the class. As an assessment, they will answer the following questions.

Assessment questions:

What was your heart rate at the beginning and end of class?

Is it different? Why or why not?

List three of your favorite stations and tell which fitness test it was preparing you for.

Why did we have you do these stations?
