Lab 10: Exercising Imagination and Building Inanimate Objects

1.      Identify a fitness theme and design appropriate fitness stations to enhance various health and skill related components of fitness.

An Amazon forest fitness theme can be appropriate with a goal of having to complete all the fitness stations in order to receive clue cards for all stations to try and discover a treasure deep in the forest. This may enhance student’s minds that with hard work they can explore the world.

Station 1 Balance - Walk across the vine. (Low Balance Beam)

Station 2 Power – Jump across the brook.

Station 3 Strength – Roll the boulder to the entrance of the cave to keep the bats from getting out. (10 pound Medicine Ball)

Station 4 Cardiovascular Endurance – Jump the vines. (Jump Roping)

Station 5 Speed and Agility – Save the Monkeys (Run from one side to the other grabbing one bean bag at a time and bringing it back to the line they started at.)

2.      Identify people that are famous for use of imagination and creativity such as Einstein, Picasso and Bach.

There are two people that come to mind that have impacted the world’s culture of technology through creativity and imagination. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are famous for their willingness to make their dreams a reality. Bill Gates created the software program Microsoft which helped the understanding of using a computer easier for all generations. Steve Jobs created Apple products such as the iPhone, iPad and the iPod. Almost everyone somewhere in the world has an Apple product of some kind. These two helped establish an easier means for social networking and communication from all ends of the earth. Businesses use both products to help the success of their business.

3.      Design a rubric for assessing the acting-out of inanimate objects by students in small groups as described in the activity close of this lab.

  1. Good posts Rob!
    On your final question I simply see a spread sheet but not actually a rubric. Meaning if you would grade the activity out of 4, what would a 1 be, 2, 3, or 4?
