Purpose of Event: Students assess the work of their buddy using 3 assessment standards. This provides feedback for the students and a summative evaluation for the teacher.
Suggested Grade Level: 3-6
Description of Idea
I place obstacles on the gym floor, such as hurdles and cones.
Build 1: All students move across the floor striking the ball or puck while maintaining control and use both sides of the blade, moving through and around the obstacles. When they get to the cone line, they may score to the mat wall. Quickly retrieve ball and try again.
Build 2: With a buddy, both partners battle for the ball as they move through the obstacles. When they get close to the cone line, they may score to the mat wall. Quickly retrieve ball and try again.
Build 3: One buddy is the assessor. They watch buddy as they move through the obstacles and score using the provided rubric. Other partner is the mover. The mover plays in the same way they have been practicing. Quickly retrieve ball and try again.
I usually use a timer to keep everything moving along.
