Attempt to strike a lightweight object with a paddle or other short-handled implement.
This module introduces students to the basics of volleying and striking through developmental play. Striking with the hand is followed by striking with a short-handled paddle, preparing students to progress toward paddle and racquet activities at the intermediate level.
The student outcomes for this lesson activity include:
-Skill: I will volley the balloon up into their air as many times as I can before it hits the floor.
-Cognitive: I will work with a balloon in my space.
-Fitness: I will actively engage and work to improve my volleying skills.
-Personal & Social Responsibility: I will work safely and follow all rules.
