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
