1. Topic-
Aerobic Fitness
2. Content-
Circuit Training
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
The goal of this lesson is for my students to increase their heart rate by doing a variety of exercises.
4. Objectives-
The learner will increase their heart rate by completing a circuit of a variety of exercises that will help the cardiovascular health.
5. Materials and Aids-
jump ropes
step aerobic boxes

6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

The teacher will explain what circuit training is and why is it important in physical education. The students will be introduced to the 5 exercises they will be doing in the circuit. All of the exercises have been taught to the students, so the students will know from prior knowledge what the exercises are.

B. Development-

The teacher will demonstrate the proper way to do stair sets, "step ups", jumping rope, side to sides and walking lunges. The five circuits will be at the four corners and one in the center of the gym. Each station will have a 1 minute time with 30 seconds to get to the next station. Each student should go through the entire circuit three times. The teacher will divide the students into 5 groups. Once divided, the students are put at one of the 5 stations to get ready to begin. Students will take a pulse.

C. Practice-

The students are at their circuits and ready. On the whistle, the students begin their circuit. When one minute is up, the teacher will blow her whistle to prompt the students to stop and to get ready to go to the next circuit. The teacher will blow the whistle for the students to rotate then again to begin the next circuit. St the end of each circuit the student will take their pulse. This will continue until all students have completed the circuit three times.

D. Independent Practice-

Student will record their pulse at the end of the circuit and compare it to the resting pulse. They will record their results on their fitness chart.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

For students with disabilities, bad back and knees the teacher will modify the circuit,but still having the student meet the objective by completing the circuit.

F. Checking for understanding-

Ask the students what they thought of the circuit and if they feel as if they got a good workout in.

G. Closure-

The teacher will explain that circuit training is important because it allows one do get a good cardiovascular workout in, in a different way and to monitor the pulse to evaluate effort.
7. Evaluation-
The teacher will evaluate the lesson by the heart rate of the students during the lesson. All students should have been actively engaged in the circuit and been able to be successful through the entire circuit.
