Lab 4 Bean bags!

1.) Explain how a unit based on lessons of this nature would serve as a foundation for acquiring specialized throwing and catching skills.
This unit is very beneficial for young students.  All the components of this lesson focus on some form of hand eye coordination, which very important to the skills of catching and throwing.  This will serve as the foundation for young students moving forward onto more complex skill based activities.

2.) Identify a theme that could be applied to health hopping appropriate for young children.
A theme for the health hoping activity we did is Finding Nemo.  You would coordinate the different activities to under water places and characters. Having the students travel from place to place. For example in the movie they were going to Sydney Australia.

3.) Design a checklist of critical elements to look for when observing a child performing a locomotor movement. 

Skill: Jump

4.) 2 bean bag games:

Bean bag shapes: Cut out different shapes and place them on the floor. Different bean bag colors. Call out commands and have the students throw the bean bags on a certain shape or color. Incorporate different locomotor skills into the game when possible.

Bean bag contest: Break students into 4 lines and have the students pass the bean bags backwards until it reaches the end of the line. Vary the ways you have the students pass the bean bags. For example: only using one hand or under the legs.
