Suggested Grade Level:
Without grasping the parachute, practice signaling a touchdown like a football official
Use your local team and call out "Touchdown Cowboys!" several times
Check for straight elbows on all students
When all students have learned to correctly signal a "touchdown", allow students to grasp the parachute
Starting at ground level, use the cue "touchdown" to successfully raise the parachute overhead
