 Conditioning to improve health.
 Content will be based on improving physical fitness and health in everyday life. Key vocabulary: fittness, cardiovascular endurance, flexability, musclar strength/endurance.
 (A) select and participate in aerobic activities that provide for enjoyment and challenge; (B) analyze and evaluate personal fitness status in terms of cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition; (C) analyze and compare health and fitness benefits derived from participating in selected aerobic activities; (D) establish realistic yet challenging health-related fitness goals; (E) develop and participate in a personal fitness program that has the potential to provide identified goals;
 ยง116.54. Aerobic Activities (c) Knowledge and skills. (3) Physical activity and health. The student exhibits a physically-active lifestyle that improves health and provides opportunities for enjoyment and challenge through aerobic activity. The student is expected to:
 Health handouts, small dumbells, and good running shoes.
 To start off, we will talk about the current health problems that are sweeping our country. Then we will talk about ways to prevent these health problems. Things that we can do in our physical education class that can be beneficial for the rest of the lives of our students. I'll explain that today we are doing health stations that will lead to creating healthier induviduals.
 Today we will be focusing on health. There will be three stations today that focus on different aspects of our health and we will do different things at each station. First, at cardiovascular enduraces station we will be jogging in place for one minute. Here is an example of the proper form for jogging in place. Next, at the flexability station we will be doing three stretches consisting of: the sit and reach stretch, shoulder stretch, and the butterfly. Since these are part of our regular stretch routines call a student to volenteer and show how to properly do each stretch. Finally the musclar strength and endurance station will consist of push-ups and squat thrust which I will properly demonstrate to the students.
 For guided practice we will go to each station one at a time and have the students divided into three groups of ten. Have the first group of ten start by running in place at the cardiovascular station. Then the next ten goes and so on and so forth. At, the flexability station the same rules are applied until all three groups have gone. Finally at musclar strength/endurance the first group of ten does pushups, then the next two groups do pushups. In the same order, said groups do squat thrust.
 For my ELL students the accommodations will be very similiar to the lesson above with regards to visual cues. Things become more difficult for my student in a wheel chair. At the cardiovascular station, instead of running in place he will use his arms to roll his wheel chair around the gym. While at the flexability station he will do the shoulder stretch, but the sit and reach and butterfly will be replaced. The replacing stretches will be the neck tilt stretch and the straight reach stretch. The straight reach stretch consist of a student reaching their arms to the highest point and holding the position. Lastly at the musclar strength/endurance stage pushups will be replaced with an inverted bench press of a small weight. The student will take a small weight and push it straight out in front of him and hold for two seconds. Squat thrust will be repalced with bicep curls. All replacement exercises will take place in the same time frame as the exercises they are replacing.
Checking For Understanding:
 In this lesson, I believe the most important checking for understanding is making sure the kids recognize the importance of this lesson. Knowing that the students understand how each of these three factors contribute to their well being. Another key point is to make sure all exercises are being performed correctly. Mistakes in exercising can lead to some major injuries so all procedures and forms of exercise should be closly monitored for understanding.
 In closure, I will just review the key points of the lesson and the importance of fittness in its realtion to health.
