1st Time Challenge
Equipment needed:
Instructors needed:
1 per group
Students will work on having good DISCIPLINE by being able to hear the instructor say “go” and then stand up and stand strong.
Teaching SKILLZ:
HEALTHY COMPETITION – The instructor can see which student can stand up the fastest without getting tricked each round. The goal for the next round is to beat that student.
AUDITORY PROCESSING – The student must be able to listen for when the instructor says “go”, and not anything else like “snow” or “gopher”. This works on their ability to listen to the full word, and not just the first sound, helping them follow verbal commands easier.
Step 1
Divide your students into groups
Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Step 3 – Explain the Rules:
