Description:

The resources can be used at the end of an educational gymnastics unit. The planning tool can be used to assist students as they design their own gymnastics series/routines, while the rubric allows teachers to assess the performance of the designed routines. Teachers should designate multiple lessons in order to provide ample time for students to design, practice, and perform routines as a culmination to the unit. Be sure to set clear guidelines for students regarding the skills that they may include in their routines. Prior to creating routines, each gymnastics skill should be explained with thorough safety instructions, demonstrated for students, and practiced in a variety of learning tasks.
