					Ultimate Frisbee
Title: Frisbee unit
SECTION A. (Overview)
Background Information
This unit will last for six days.
The class has 25 students.
The students are in ninth grade.
The student's age ranges from 13-15.
Goals
*The students should posses the psychomotor activities such as Throwing and catching.
*The social and emotional level is typical of ninth grade students.
*Posses the ability to control themselves most of the time
*Some students have played frisbee before in both organized leagues and with each other in a
non- supervised environment. Some students have never played before. I will
teach them the skills affectively and I will work on the skills in the psychomotor
stage.
Rationale
*If students develop skills in Frisbee, as they get older they might use these skills to continue
to play and thus obtaining cardiovascular exercise.

Equipment
12-15 frisbees, polyspots
Anticipated Difficulties
I do not anticipate any difficulty other than asthma situations or if any student is previously hurt or
injured. If the Frisbee is too hard the teacher may elect to use the soft one. This will help make
sure there are no injuries if catching or throwing could be a problem. One problem might be
relaying the message that obesity is a huge problem in America and that these skills might help
them when they are older and need to keep exercising regularly.
SECTION B. (Standards, Objectives)
Standards
Standard 2.5: All Students Will Learn And Apply Movement Concepts And Skills That Foster
Participation In Physical Activities Throughout Life.
Standard 2.6: All Students Will Learn And Apply Health-Related Fitness Concepts.

*rules students will abide by all soccer rules
*strategies students will learn teamwork
*concepts the concept of open space, a triangle offense
Affective
*self-confidence students will set goals that they feel area attainable so that success will be
assured
*cooperation students will need to rely on each other to accomplish the final goal
Psychomotor
*basic movement- skills will refine their ability to catch and throw an object
*sport skills-students will work on throwing and catching a frisbee
*health related fitness students will be working on their cardiovascular fitness
*motor related fitness students will work on hand eye coordination
SECTION C. (Learning Experiences/Block Plan/Matrix)
Learning Experiences
*opening activity-Students will grab partners a frisbee. They will start throwing competition.
Every day they will be allowed to try and see who can complete the most consecutive
throws. The first day they will be allowed to throw with their right hand and catch with
both hands. The second day they will be allowed to throw with their right hand and
only catch with their right hand. The third and fourth day they will be allowed only to
use their right left hand to catch and throw. On the fifth and sixth day they will be
allowed to only use whatever they want. After five minutes students will stretch
through a progression of leg stretches arm, and wrist stretches.
*fitness activity-Students will grab the same partner they had for the opening activity. They will
then pair up with another pair. They will set up a 90-degree triangle. The extra player
will jog after the Frisbee. The object is to keep the right angle at all times. One
student will start out running to the open corner. The person with the Frisbee will
throw a pass that will be at the corner when their partner gets their. They will
continue t his drill and switch the runner after 30 seconds.
*individual skill and skill analysis-Students will analyze each other on the passing and catching
skills. Students will watch for a follow through that is toward the target, as well as the
person allowing the Frisbee to give as they catch it. Shoulders should be facing target
on both throws and catches.
*skill drills and practice sessions One days 1, 3, and 5 students will go through an individualized
stations. Students will challenge themselves by writing down their best scores on the
four stages.
*Game situations & lead up games Students will be engaged in two on two small-sided games.
These games will last approximately 5 minutes.
*Classroom learning experiences-students will learn the rules of ultimate Frisbee.
*Closure-students will be debriefed on why Frisbee may play an important role in student’s lives
after graduation.
Teaching Methodology
*Teacher style-I will teach in a lecture and use demonstration. I will lecture on the rules of
frisbee. I will use a little lecture and a large amount visual student demonstration.
*Student/teacher demonstration-Students will be demonstrating throwing and catching. They
will show the correct form throwing and catching. The head will remain on the
targtet. The studtent will gently accept the Frisbee into their hands. For a pass
students will use either hand. Shoulders will be squared off at the target when
catching.
*Practice-I will instruct students to practice throwing on their own time.
SECTION D. (Unit analysis/reflection)
Student Assessment
*Checklists-During class students will write down cues for each drill.
*Self/peer evaluation-Students will orally test their partners as previously stated.
*Subjective/objective skill test-I will grade students on basis of form and technique of skills in
drills and games.

Teacher Assessment - My preparation of previous classes helped out a lot because
they came into this unit equipped with the some of the skills that are needed.
Also my subjective evaluations will help the students to continue to use good
form. If they stay with good form then eventually good function will follow.
Unit evaluation-I believe that the whole unit would work well. If there are any
problems with it I will use in class management to correct the problems.

approximately 10 feet from with partner. The first day they will be allowed to throw
with their right or left hand and catch with both hands. This will get them acclimated
to throwing and catching a Frisbee.
Warm-up
Students will line up and stretch their quads, hamstrings, calves,
biceps, triceps, and trunk by using the stretches we have used all year.
- Content (Description of Activity, Focus, New Material)
Students will be lectured and demonstrated to. This will include:
We are playing a game of keep-away with a disc. Eventually, we want someone
on our team to catch the disc in the other team’s endzone. If the other team has the disc,
we want to intercept it or make them drop it. We aren’t allowed to touch the other team’s
players.
There is two standard throws in ultimate: the backhand, the forehand (or flick).
The backhand is the throw you’ve probably used on the beach. The forehand is that crazy
flicky thing you might have seen someone throw. The hammer is the loopy upside-down
throw. If you have the disc, the defense could force you to throw to either side. Knowing
the two basic throws (backhand and forehand) makes this much easier. The backhand is
normally used for throwing to the left, the forehand for throwing to the right.
Backhand: Grip the edge of the disc so that all your fingers are wrapped around
the edge of the disc and your thumb lies along the top of the disc. Extend the throwing
arm across your body and swing your arm away from your body, releasing the disc when
your arm is about 45 degrees from your body with a snap of the wrist. At the same time,
step forward with your right leg; you should complete your step and release the disc at
approximately the same time. The power behind your throw should come mostly from
wrist motion and partly from the movement of your arm. Make sure the disc stays level
while you throw!
Forehand: The forehand throw is more difficult and will take a little more practice
to get right. For the forehand throw, you will only use your two fingers and thumb to grip
the disc. Place your middle finger on the rim of the underside of the disc. Extend your
index finger toward the center of the disc on the underside and rest your thumb on the top
of the disc, wrapping it around the edge. The power behind the forehand throw comes
almost completely from your wrist. Stand with the disc to your right, horizontal to the
ground. Hold it even with your body, maybe slightly behind you. Rotate the disc on your
wrist behind your hand and snap your wrist forward, moving your arm forward slightly
also. Release the disc when your arm and wrist movement bring it in front of you about
45 degrees, maybe slightly less. At the same time, step forward with your right foot (this
may be counter-intuitive at first, especially if you’ve ever thrown a baseball), stepping
down just as you release the disc. It is common to find your forehand throws landing
vertical rather than horizontal at first - try tilting the outside edge of the disc toward the
ground before you throw. Tilting the disc this way is also helpful if there is a strong wind.
Catching:
Pancake catch. Use two hands. Get your hands on either side of the disc and
smack them together like a trap.
Alligator or C. Hold Hand like a C and close hand over edge of Frisbee.
- Procedures (Time, Classroom Management, Strategies, Transitions)
We will start out with the opening activity as stated above. We will then go
into the lecture and demonstration. We will then go directly into stretching
as stated above. The students will then get into partners and practice first
the forehand throw and then the backhand throw. They can catch any
way they feel comfortable. We will only have 30 minutes of actual class
time so they will get five minutes to open, 10 minutes of lecture, five
minutes of stretching and ten minutes of throwing and catching.
- Closure/Culminating Experience (Lesson Activity/Discussion)
We will close out the class by going over the cues to catching and
throwing.
Section D. (Lesson Analysis)
- Student Assessment
-
- I will gather information by giving them a quiz on the rules of ultimate
Frisbee and cues for one catch and one throw.
-
- Teacher Assessment (Describe how you will assess yourself and how well
you taught the lesson as described)
I will use my student evaluation to see how well they are listening to my
cues. If my cues are not being used I will change my teaching methods.
- Evaluation (Using the data gathered in the assessment phase, describe how
you will modify or adapt this specific lesson or other lessons in the future)
I will modify this lesson so that the students will be able to use the cues. If
the cues are not working I will try to change them so that the students can
utilize what is best.

Section C. (Learning Experience)
Introduction (Anticipatory Set, Review, Warm-up)
Students will start out by grabbing their partners and using the throws and
catches that they were taught yesterday. This will include the forehand and
backhand throw, and the pancake and alligator catch. They will then go directly
into stretching.
Content (Description of Activity, Focus, New Material)
Students will then be broken up into four groups. Each group will be formed by
randomly assigning numbers. Group 1 will play 2 and group 3 will play 4. They will be
playing a scrimmage. The only way to score points is for one team to consecutively
throw and complete 7 passes in a row. This will force them to work on their catching and
throwing while using their cardiovascular system. I will then switch one team from each
court and start new games.
Procedures (Time, Classroom Management, Strategies, Transitions) Give
stepby-
step progress of entire lesson
Students will grab their partners and warm-up for five minutes. They will then go
directly into stretching for five minutes. Students will then be broken up into teams and
play 2 scrimmages using only 7 throws to gain a point. That will last 15 minutes. We
will then go to closure. My strategy is to make passing and catching the focal point and
not letting them know they are getting cardiovascularly fit at the same time.
Closure/Culminating Experience (Lesson Activity/Discussion)
I will ask the students what they liked about the lesson and what didn’t they like.
We will go over the rules such as only two steps after receiving the Frisbee, no
contact, and if the Frisbee hits the ground then it is the other teams.
Section D. (Lesson Analysis)
- I will gather information by watching the students form during the game.
This will show me how well they are paying attention and using the
information they are given.
- Teacher Assessment (Describe how you will assess yourself and how well
you taught the lesson as described)
I will use my student evaluation to see how well they are listening to my
cues. If my cues are not being used I will change my teaching methods or
cues.
- Evaluation (Using the data gathered in the assessment phase, describe how
you will modify or adapt this specific lesson or other lessons in the future)
I will modify this lesson so that the students will be able to use the cues. If
the cues are not working I will try to change them so that the students can
utilize what is best. If passing needs more work I can increase the
number of passes. If catches are what needs work I can limit the number
of steps so more passes will be needed.
