1. Topic-
Teaching fourth grade students to be able to effectively and respectfully participate in a physical education activity while at the same time helping them to quickly recall their multiplication and division for this lesson.
2. Content-
Physical education activity integrating fourth grade multiplication and division math concepts to this lesson.
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1.Improve movement competency of students while participating in a physical education activity.
2.Improve physical fitness of students
3.Improve the ability of students to quickly recall their multiplication and division facts.
4. Objectives-
1.To assure that students exhibit responsible and respectful behavior towards themselves and others during this lesson.
2.To improve the physical fitness of students while working with other students in this lesson.
3.Improve the ability of students to quickly recall their multiplication and division facts during this lesson.
5. Materials and Aids-
A beach ball, a tennis ball, a soccer ball, a plastic bucket, pieces of paper with multiplication and division facts written on them (for placing in the plastic bucket), a radio with a CD player, CDs of child safe and age appropriate music(math facts or a song about being healthy), a piece of paper on a clip board and a pencil for keeping track of scores.
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.The teacher will take the students out to the playground where they will all form into a large circle on the grass and sit down an arms length away from each other. Two students will help the teacher to carry materials for the lesson outside. While the students are sitting down, the teacher will explain the lesson and the rules to the students.
2.The teacher will reiterate the importance of every student exhibiting respectful and responsible behavior to themselves and each other.
3.The teacher will have a quick demonstration of the lesson to the to students so that they understand what their teacher expects them to do during the lesson. During this demonstration, the teacher will also show the students how he/she expects the students to properly pass the ball to their classmates. The teacher will then ask the students if they have any questions before they get started with the lesson.

B. Development-

1.The teacher will have the students to stand up, still staying in their large circle. The teacher will hand one of the balls to a student standing in the circle. The teacher will start playing the music CD in the radio.
2.As the music on the radio plays, the student with the ball will appropriately pass the ball to one of their classmates who will then pass the ball to another classmate and they will continue passing the ball to various classmates until the music stops.
3.When the music stops, the ball stays in the hands of the student holding it. The student that is holding the ball when the music stops is the student that will walk over to the plastic bucket that will be sitting right next to the teacher, and they will pick a piece of paper out of the bucket. The piece of paper will have a math problem on it. The student will tell the teacher what the answer to the math problem is. If the student gets the problem correct, the teacher will put one point next to their name on the score paper but if the student gets the answer to the math problem incorrect, they get an x next to their name (the teacher will also note on their paper, what problem each student misses). The student that was holding the ball gets back in the circle and the student that was standing to the left of that student will then get a chance to answer the math question. If the student gets the problem correct, they get a point next to their name but if they get the problem incorrect, they get an x by their name as well. That piece of paper with the math problem written on it will go into the second plastic bucket that will be sitting on the opposite side of the teacher. The student that had the ball will pass it to another student and the game will continue.
After the students have been playing for about fifteen minutes, they will stop the game and pick the second physical education ball. Fifteen minutes after that, that ball will be put down and the third physical education ball will then be put into the game.

C. Practice-

1.The teacher will monitor how the students throw each ball, to see if they are throwing them appropriately.
2.The teacher will monitor the students' respectfulness towards themselves and others during this lesson.
3.The teacher will monitor the strengths and weaknesses of each student regarding their physical fitness skills, their social skills, and their math skills. The teacher will skillfully bring in any correction where needed.

D. Independent Practice-

1.The teacher will have students demonstrate their throwing abilities of each of the three balls at different distances to note progress that they have made.
2.The teacher will give students timed math worksheets with multiplication and division problems on them to see if they progressed in the time it takes them to recall these facts.
3.The teacher will give students opportunities throughout each day to work on their social skills, and he/she will monitor how they treat each other/

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.If the weather does not permit the class to complete this lesson outside, they can either complete it in the gymnasium or in the classroom.

F. Checking for understanding-

1.Teacher will explain the lesson to the students in clear detail before they begin, they will then answer any questions the students may have regarding the lesson before they begin.
2.The teacher will monitor entire lesson including whether students are throwing the various balls correctly, if they are practicing appropriate social skills towards themselves and others, and showing an understanding of the math concepts that they are using when answering the math problems.
3.Throughout the lesson, the teacher will answer any questions the students may have and they will monitor the lesson while it is taking place as well.

G. Closure-

1.Final physical education test on the physical activity that students worked on during this lesson.
2.Final timed math test including multiplication and division problems that the students covered in this lesson.
7. Evaluation-
1.The teacher will look at the notes they wrote on each student at the beginning of this lesson versus the notes they wrote on each student at the end of the lesson and compare them to see how much each student progressed.
2.The notes the teacher will take on each student include their physical activity progress, their social progress, and their progress concerning their accuracy and quick recall of their multiplication and division problems.
8. Teacher Reflection-
*Different music that is age appropriate and acceptable.
*Students may be able to work in groups next time when they move to double and triple digit math problems.
*Change up physical activity (kick ball).
