Birdie in the Cage-Underhand Serves

Subject Area

Physical Education


6, 7, 8


This activity is called Birdie in the Cage. The object of the activity is to practice underhand serves and to become more accurate when the birdie is served. The first partner will stand on the poly spot and serve the birdie with a swing low to high, trying to strike it into the hoop or the poly spot inside of the hoop. The other partner retrieves the birdies. After a set period of time, the partners will switch roles.

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