Push-up Challenge

by Corey Scott on May 14, 2020

Posted in: Uncategorized

It was brought to my attention to issue a push-up challenge to the students of APA. Here is how we will do it? Have someone take a video or someone other than yourself count your push-ups. If you use a counter list them in your email to me stating how many you completed without touching the ground. Once you touch the ground your challenge is complete. Please email your totals by 5/22/20 and I will publish a list of participants on the blog.

Thanks for participating and enjoy,

Coach Scott

Lesson Plan: May 21, 2020
Teacher:C.Scott
Subject:6th  Grade Physical Education
Objective:At the end of this lesson, cadets will: Students will develop ways to keep themselves physically active.   Students will learn ways to benefit themselves from being physically active.
Materials Needed:(Video Clips, Computers, Paper, Pen or Pencil, etc.)   Physical Education: “Children and adolescents should do 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. Most of the 60 minutes should be either moderate- or vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity, and should include vigorous-intensity physical activity at least 3 days a week. As part of their 60 or more minutes of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include muscle-strengthening activities, like climbing, at least 3 days a week and bone-strengthening activities, like jumping, at least 3 days a week. Children and adolescents are often active in short bursts of time rather than for sustained periods of time, and these short bursts can add up to meet physical activity needs. Physical activities for children and adolescents should be developmentally appropriate, fun, and offer variety.” (USDA, 2019)    
Assignment: (As written for the cadets)For Physical Education class today, you are required to do twenty minutes or more of moderate to vigorous activity. You need to record what your exercises are and the specific amount of time that you performed that exercise. Playing video games does not count as physical activity, even if they are sports games. Playing sports and physically active games, working out, shoveling snow, are all examples of moderate to vigorous physical activity.   
Verification: (What will the cadets give the instructor?  What is needed in order to prove the objective has been met?)Email exercise journal to cscott@goapa.org May 22
