Free kicks, goal kicks, corner kicks, penalty kicks. These are types of kicks in the game of soccer. Lesson four is all about learning and practicing how to kick the ball. Laces, laces, laces.

Students kick a ball with the proper technique and recognize and demonstrate the sequence it takes to kick the ball properly. They kick a ball a lengthy distance in the proper direction without losing control of the ball or their bodies. Students kick a ball at a target 5 to 10 feet away and be relatively accurate with their kicks.
How do you throw a ball? How do you make a peanut butter sandwich? How do you draw a Tyrannosaurus Rex? Pairs of learners write directions for a simple activity and partners follow the directions exactly. A fun way to encourage writers to craft precise, exact, and complete directions.
Second graders kick and pass with the instep and outside of the foot. They demonstrate the difference between sole and toe trapping. Students kick with accuracy and varying velocities (distances). Students get a ball and begin moving throughout the cone area practicing the sole trap, toe trap, and inside pass.
Students continue to examine the proper way to kick a ball. In groups, they practice all the kicking positions from a previous instructional activity and try to increase their accuracy when it comes to making a goal. To end the instructional activity, they discover other techniques to help them while kicking to insure the ball stays in control.
Twidditch is based on the Harry Potter made up game of Quidditch. Quidditch is played on flying broomsticks and since that seems to be an impossibility for a regular PE class, Twidditch is played on rolling scooter boards. The game, the rules, and fouls are explained. It game is even separated into grade levels with components for the players in higher grades. Twidditch looks like so much fun!
Young scholars practice kicking skills. In this soccer physical education lesson plan, students play a game in which they take turns kicking a ball with team mates in an attempt to get the ball into a hoola hoop. Young scholars tally their scores on a score sheet and add up the number of kicks when finished with 9 "holes" of soccer golf.
Fourth graders explore Newton's First Law of Motion. They conduct an experiment to observe what happens to a ball that is placed carefully on slippery ice. They also observe what happens to a dowel on the ice, then draw and label pictures of what they observe during the experiment.
