All-Star Passing

Subject Area

Physical Education


4, 5, 6, 7, 8


This activity includes three levels of passing: rookie, starter, and all-star. Students move with various dribbling skills and pass with other students. Throughout the activity, dribbling/movements can be changed by using various offensive tactics and teaching ways to create open spaces. Later in the activity, defense can be added to further teach both offensive and defensive tactics. This activity is designed to teach basketball but can be adjusted to teach many sports that utilize team defensive and offensive tactics.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.


    Apply skills learned in earlier grades - simple strategies and tactics in chasing/ fleeing, offensive/ defensive strategies and tactics.
