Lab 7: Jumping Rope For A Healthy Heart

1. Can a child in a wheelchair enter the front door and the back door? What modifications would you make?

Yes, I would just slow down the rotation of the rope for the student.

2. How would you apply goal setting to this lesson?

I would encourage the students to set goals for how many consecutive jumps they can achieve or I would tell them to set goals for getting to higher progressions of jumping rope.

3. Design a long rope jumping routine for a pair of students jumping at the same time.

Jump the snake, Jump the Brook, Front Door/ Back Door.

4. Create a checklist of critical elements to look for and use in teaching basic, two foot rope jumping.

Arms Swing Forward, Bend Knees, Spring Up and Out, Land on Two feet.

5. Describe how you would go about organizing a rope jumping club for your elementary school.

I would encourage students to reap the benefits involved with both health and fun. I would also send out a letter to parents telling them the healthy benefits of jumping rope and encourage them to come in and watch their children. At the end of the club I would hold a fundraiser where the students would get a sponsor and money donated for the amount of times they can jump rope.

6. What is Stimulus Variation? And give an example from lab.

Stimulus Variation is changes made in an activity that could cause a certain arousal for students. An example from lab could be when we were jumping the brook by making the brook bigger or smaller depending on student ability.

  1. Stimulus variation is more about switch tasks with same purpose, like different bean bag activities all related to balance and body awareness, it is about making sure students maintain their excitement to learn.
