      Project:  With this project you will be working on an aerobics/dance project. You will be creating a line dance or a segment of an aerobics routine. Choose one of the following assignments:

       

      #1: Line dance-You need to create a line dance, of your own. You may take steps from other dances and combine them into your own dance, but the dance has to be a new dance created from your minds.

      These are the requirements for the dance project:

      • Create a name for your dance: the more creative, the better
      • Create a dance that can be continuously danced for an entire song
      • Put your dance to music; determine a specific song that the dance accompanies (I will need to approve the song before you present this to the class)
      • Present your dance in front of the class to your desired selection of music
      • Then, break the dance down into parts and teach the class your dance
      • Finally, create a fictitious origin for the dance-this must be at least two written pages in length. In this paper, I want you to discuss where the dance came from, who invented it and how they invented it, and any changes it has undergone.

       

      To turn in:

      • 2-page written fictitious explanation of the dance's origin (very specific and creative)
      • Paper listing the name of the dance, the group members. The actual dance written down (steps and counts), and each person's specific contribution to the project

You may do a 10-minute warm-up, a 10-minute cool-down, a cardio-workout, a circuit training workout, a strength workout, or an isolated workout for a specific body part (such as the abdominal muscles, the legs, the arms, the hips and butt, etc.). If you are not doing a warm-up or cool-down, you must begin the segment with a brief warm-up and end with a brief cool-down.

      Requirements for aerobics segment:

      • Must create your own 10 minute segment of a routine
      • Each member must adequately participate in the project
      • You must provide your own music for this routine (I must approve this before presentation)
      • Create a name for your workout as if you would have your own video
      • Presentation - You must explain the focus of your routine. You must also present the segment to the class. You, as a group, will walk around to make sure everyone is doing the routine correctly. Remember to tell the class tips for not injuring themselves. Examples of these safety precautions would be: "Make sure to relax your neck and use your abdominal muscles to pull yourself up" (crunches). " Make sure your toes are in front of your knees when squatting." "Be sure to breathe out at the hardest part of exertion."

      Very Important:  When designing your game board, be sure to have a variety of spaces such as regular spaces, pick a card spaces, move ahead/move back/lose a turn spaces.  Also, have a start space and finish space.

       

      Board Game Rules: (these are the rules for your game)

      1. Up to 4 players may play at a time.
      2. Place the game pieces on the start space.

      4. The first player rolls a die and moves his/her game piece the correct number of spaces.
      5. If the game piece lands on a "Pick a Card" space, then you must pick a Question Card.  If the player answers correctly, they move ahead 2 spaces.  If they answer incorrectly, they move back 2 spaces.  Place the used cards at the bottom of the pile.
      6. If the game piece lands on a blank space, then the next player goes.  If the game piece lands on a Consequence space, the player must choose a Consequence Card and do what it says.  (consequence cards must be like, go back to start, move back 10 spaces, etc.)
