Leave it to the classic jump rope to get your class excited about physical activity! Your class will begin by discussing the benefits of jumping rope as a form of exercise and learning a few different types of jumps. Then in groups of four, your young athletes will engage in various activities that will build in progression, and ultimately lead to independent jump rope practice. This is the first resource in a series of fitness and physical activity lessons.
