EPISODE 1: Introduction

Bring students into the gymnasium on my command in 2 lines and have them sit on the end line

Teacher will introduce himself and then begin to go over the rules for the gymnasium

Warm Up Activity

Explanation of Activity: Teacher will D&D;
Students will find a spot inside the designated area in their own personal space. As I call out a color, they will come up to me on a line and tell me their name. Through out this activity, I will also call out FREEZE and MELT to check students understanding of the rules.

EPISODE II: Lesson Focus

Students are going to write their name in the floor using their feet. They can walk or skip based on what teacher says. They are to come and say their name to the teacher one at a time as they finish. Then they will go back and try it again but differently (Bigger, Smaller). The teacher will decide when this activity is finished on his command and the students will freeze and melt.

EPISODE III: Culminating Activity/Cool

The teacher will D&D; as follows: All students will start in their own personal space. Teacher will select two students to be taggers. When the go signal is given (Ready, Set, Go), the two students with the pinnies on will try and tag the others. If the student is tagged, the student most come to the teacher and tell me hisher name to be un-frozen. Will do this 2-3 times with different taggers each time.

The students must be careful not to bump into each and always staying in their own personal space.

Each game will last 2-3 minutes at which time new taggers will be selected.

Have students sit down and discuss boundaries, rules, and protocol to check for complete understanding.

Students will then line up at the door according to their gender.
