Course:      PPL10                                  Grade:      9                          Date:  November  21 ,  2017  

Subject:      Handball                                    Strand/Concept:    Active  Living/Movement  Competence:  Skills,  concepts,  and  strategies        

Location:      Gym    

Lesson  Plan  Description  –  (one/two  paragraphs  with  general  details  about  what  you  will  do  and  how  you  will  do  it)  
This  is  a  beginning  lesson  for  handball.  We  are  specifically  looking  at  the  three  phases  of  movement:  preparation,  
execution,  and  follow-­‐through  for  both  throwing  and  receiving  a  ball.  The  general  warm-­‐up  is  to  get  students  moving  
and  to  get  their  heart  rates  up.  This  warm-­‐up  all  students  should  know  as  they  have  been  doing  it  since  September.  To  
start  handball  there  will  be  a  discussion,  popcorn  style,  on  the  phases  of  movement  and  what  you  should  be  doing  
during  each  phase  for  sending  (throwing)  a  ball  as  well  as  receiving  a  ball.  They  will  then  practice  throwing  to  each  
other  while  slowly  increasing  the  distance  so  they  can  see  what  they  have  to  change  to  make  the  ball  go  further.  
Students  will  then  be  in  small  groups  to  play  a  game  to  practice  throwing  a  ball  to  their  teammates  with  pressure  from  
another  player.  Finally  there  will  be  a  mini  version  of  handball  where  students  will  split  into  team  and  play  a  game  of  
ultimate  handball.  There  will  be  a  focus  on  communicating  with  other  players  and  proper  throwing  and  receiving

correctly  etc.)  
B1.3  –  demonstrate  and  apply  an  understanding  of  the  phases  of  movement  (i.e.,  preparation,  execution,  follow-­‐

• Actively  apply  the  skills  of  throwing  a  ball  in  a  game  setting      
• Actively  engage  and  participate  in  physical  activity  setting    
• Create  a  safe  environment    
Success  Criteria  Discuss  with  students:  How  will  I  know  I  have  learned  what  I  need  to  learn?    
I  can:  use  verbal  and  non-­‐verbal  communication    
I  can:  participate  to  the  best  of  my  ability    
I  can:  apply  appropriate  force  to  an  object  with  a  full  range  of  motion  
I  can:  receive  an  object  by  keeping  my  eye  on  it  and  creating  a  target  
I  can:  move  while  receiving  a  pass  
I  can:  move  to  open  space  to  receive    
Assessment  –  how  will  I  know  students  have  learned  what  I  intended?    How  will  they  know  if  they've  met  the  learning  goals?

Learning  Environment  
The  environment  used  will  be  the  whole  gym.  With  34  students  the  whole  gym  is  needed  in  order  to  safely  run  warm-­‐
up  activities  and  drills.  The  bleachers  will  be  put  away  to  have  more  room  to  move  around.  This  space  allows  for  
different  grouping  sizes:  from  everyone  working  together,  working  by  themselves,  partners,  small  groups  or  even  in  
big  teams.
