In this lesson, students are transitioning from working on positioning in a wall game to honing position in a net game. Very similar ideas, but students get to see firsthand how positioning and angles are integrally important in sports.
This lesson plan is the first lesson for the start of a unit on Net/Wall games which would include sports such as: volleyball, badminton, netball, wallball, and squash! All of the lessons in this unit can be used with almost any grade with some slight modification to the equipment or rules. If you would like try it with an older grade, such as 6-8, use smaller balls and paddles. For the lower grades, feel free to make the rules more lenient or have them use larger paddles or bigger/bouncier balls.
This is a really fun game which allows students to begin utilizing muscle memory in order to return to a home position. I often have students who excel in it begin a competition to see which pairs can finish the drill with the quickest time.
Six weeks worth of lesson plans aiming to develop agility, balance and coordination. These lesson plans are aimed at the non PE specialist primary school teacher. Excellent for Multi-skill after school clubs.
