Body awareness
Exercises for body awareness
Shape, balance, quality, space, exploring
Locomotor skills
Skills used to move the body from one location to another: Jumping, skipping, galloping, sliding.
Requires the body to leap with both feet and to land with both feet. Arms can be used to create upward momentum
A series of step-hops completed with alternate feet, teach by taking a step and a small hop on the same foot and then shift
As the lead foot steps forward, the back foot steps up to meet the lead foot, teach by holding hands in a circle and sliding to a beat
Lead foot steps to the side, the other foot quickly follows done on the balls of the feet while shifting weight from the lead foot to the trailing foot
Nonlocomotor skills
Skills in whic the individual does not have to change location in order to practice an activity. Stretching, twisting, pushing.
Movement carries body parts away from the body’s center core and moves joints and muscles through a range of movements
Rotation of a body part around its own long axis
Controlled, forceful action performed against an oobject, moves the body away from the object while applying force
Propelling an object into space, flexing the hip and moving the shoulder foward while extending the elbow
Using hands to stop a moving object which requires mature hand-eye coordination, and eventually reduce the size helping perception, and bouncing which teaches angles
Striking action performed by the feet; punt kicking, place kicking, soccer kicking requiring an extension of the hip
An object is hit with an implement such as a bat, racket, hand involving movement of the body to create the force necessary to increase the speed of the object
Newton’s law of motion
The force of the energy in the body causes changes in physical motion
Newton’s first law
When an object in in motion, it will remain in motion until it meets and outside force.. Basketball backboard gravity
Newton’s second law
Relationship between object’s mass, acceleration, and applied force.. sit in chair try to shoot a hoop, stand and the ball can reach the hoop
Netwon’s third law
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction…bat and ball
Center of the human body is the center of gravity of the point around which the mass of the body is equally distributed… during movement and exercise the body adjusts to maintain stability
Resistance of motion of two moving objects… ball on grass slower than asphalt
