Jump Rope
Two foot jumping
Forearms
Calf Muscle 


3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes

1. The entire class progresses to using a jump rope
2. The entire class gets a quality cardio workout
3. The students feel muscle fatigue in their forearms, and calves.
4. Some of the students are able to progress to doing more advanced
jump roping activities. 


4. Objectives

1. Students are able to identify forearm and calf muscles.
2. Students are able to progress to using a jump rope.
3. Some of the students are able to do more jump roping activities. 


5. Materials and Aids

Clear, open space
Jump ropes 


6. Procedures/Methods

A. Introduction
1. Gather the class and show them what a jump rope is.
2. Show the students where their forearms are.
3. Show the students were their calves are.
4. Give a brief explanation of how to properly use a jump rope.
5. Show extra jump roping activities such as a double jump, or crisscrossing. 


B. Development
1. Demonstrate the proper use of a jump rope.
2. Students are able to jump rope for thirty seconds.
2. Demonstrate a double jump. (a normal jump rope and the rope goes
around your body twice).
3. Demonstrate the crisscross 


C. Practice
1. Start the class with stationary two footed jumps to build up
the calf muscles, and the muscles in the ankles. This is to get the
students used to jumping and landing.
2. Once the students are able to complete this exercise, progress
the two footed jumping to add movement and begin going back and forth
vertically to increase difficulty.
3. If the students show proficiency in the previous exercises, begin
to add a jump rope and watch to help struggling students because it
is expected.
4. If the students are able to jump rope easily, have them begin double
jumps.
5. For more variation have them begin crisscrossing.
6. Students are capable of repeating reps of jump roping for thirty
seconds. 


D. Independent Practice
1. Two footed stationary jumping for thirty seconds.
2. Successfully completing one full circle with a jump rope.
3. Being able to double jump.
4. Being able to crisscross.
5. Thirty second jump rope test. 


E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)
1. Don't progress students that are not capable.
2. Have students pretend they have a jump rope to work on the skill
without feeling left out. 


F. Checking for understanding
1. Ask the students where their forearms are.
2. Ask the class where their calves are. 


G. Closure
1. Ask the students if they enjoyed the workout, and they could
feel the muscle fatigue.
2. Point out the positives seen in the class. 


7. Evaluation

1. Where students able to progress through jump roping activities.
2. Where the students able to repeat multiple repetitions using the
jump rope. 


8. Teacher Reflection

Explain the benefits of jump roping as an cardio workout alternative
to running. Elaborate on the importance of building up lower body
muscle endurance and increasing foot speed for the athletes in the
class.
