Lesson Plan: Outdoor Activities for Primary 1 Children

Subject: Physical Education Topic: Outdoor Activities Grade Level: Primary 1 (6-7 years old)

Introduction: - Begin the lesson by asking the students if they enjoy playing outside. Discuss the benefits of outdoor activities, such as staying active, exploring nature, and having fun with friends. - Show a short video clip (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K-CQrjI0uY) that highlights different outdoor activities for children.

Lesson Outline: 1. Warm-up Activity (5 minutes): - Lead the students in a quick warm-up activity, such as jogging in place, jumping jacks, or stretching exercises. - Explain the importance of warming up before engaging in physical activities to prevent injuries.

  1. Introduction to Outdoor Activities (10 minutes):
    • Show pictures of various outdoor activities, such as playing soccer, riding a bicycle, flying a kite, or playing on a swing.
    • Discuss each activity, asking questions like:
      • What outdoor activities have you tried before?
      • Which activity do you enjoy the most? Why?
      • What equipment or tools do you need for each activity?
  2. Outdoor Activity Stations (20 minutes):
    • Set up different stations in the outdoor area, each focusing on a specific activity.
    • Divide the students into small groups and rotate them through the stations.
    • Stations can include activities like:
      • Soccer: Practice kicking and passing the ball.
      • Obstacle Course: Set up a simple course with cones or hula hoops for students to navigate.
      • Nature Walk: Take a short walk around the school grounds, observing and discussing different plants and animals.
      • Playground Games: Play traditional games like tag, duck-duck-goose, or Simon says.

Questioning: - Throughout the lesson, ask open-ended questions to encourage critical thinking and class participation. Some sample questions include: - What are the benefits of playing outdoor games? - How can we stay safe while playing outside? - Can you think of any other outdoor activities that we haven’t discussed?

Assessment: - Observe the students’ participation and engagement during the warm-up activity and outdoor stations. - Use a checklist to assess their understanding of the different outdoor activities and their ability to follow instructions. - Provide verbal feedback and encouragement to each student individually.

Differentiation: - For students who may require additional support, pair them with a peer buddy who can assist and encourage them during the activities. - Modify the difficulty level of the stations based on individual needs, ensuring that all students can participate and enjoy the activities.

Plenary: - Gather the students back together and have a class discussion about their favorite outdoor activities and what they learned. - Show a short video clip (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K-CQrjI0uY) summarizing the different outdoor activities they explored during the lesson. - Distribute a worksheet (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Outdoor-Activities-Worksheet-Primary-1-Grade-1-4789327) for students to complete independently or with the help of a parent/guardian at home.
