B. Warm-Ups (3 A/M)

I will put the kids into groups by counting out numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. All “ones” will go sit in their location in the gym, twos go and do the same, etc. I will give them a sheet to put their groups’ names on.

C. Introduction/Demonstration (M 6-7)

(After students are in groups, I will begin)

Today we are going to design and create a haunted walk-through, with the materials behind me. We must all work together and each of us will contribute to the end product.

I will demonstrate by building the entrance of the walk-through, standing up the mats and hanging multiple jump ropes over the top of the entrance. You will be asked to complete a section of the path. You will all have a chance to go through, but if you are not going through, you must still work in the maze holding, moving, or managing props. One person is going to be blind-folded and the other one will be led them through the maze. When they finish the other group members will get a chance to go through.

New lesson:

                “Today we are working on team work and your imagination.
                But first we need to talk about safety in the maze.”
                1. Nothing can fall off of anything.
                2. Nothing can hit or touch a person as they are going through.
                3. You cannot swing or push anything or anyone.
                4. You cannot build something that someone can fall off of.

D. Challenges for class cues. (5 I/A)

                    1. Team work (working together in groups)
                    2. Construction (if it holds up)
                    3. Creative (good, interesting, excellent)

As the students are attempting the activity, I will go around instructing and giving input. Also, I will be filling out my cue sheet that they all signed in the warm-up. (I will put a check in the square where they accomplished their cues.

E. Game I (I/M/A 20)

Building the section of the mazes

F. Game II

Walking through the haunted maze and working different stations.

G. Closure (2 I/M)

Say, “I’m very happy with the way you performed for me today. I saw a lot of you working together and understanding the cues. All of you did a great job in designing the maze in safe ways.”

IV. Did the class do as I asked of them?

      Did they work in a safe manner?
      Did approximately 80% work together?
      Did approximately 80% at least try the activity?
