MS PE has begun our Invasion Games unit. Invasion games are those sports or
recreational activities, which specify team territories into which the offense must
penetrate for the purpose of scoring. Defenses are trying to stop this from
happening. Examples would be Futbol, Football, Hockey, Rugby, Ultimate
Frisbee, Basketball, Team Handball, etc.
In this unit students will be applying physical skill sets emphasized and practiced
in previous units (catching, throwing, striking). The thematic focus is on
developing and improving understanding and using concepts of defensive and
offensive Strategy and Tactics in team games. We will be using simplified
invasion games to promote strategic planning and tactical execution.
In addition to our daily standards, this unit specifically addresses the following
2.3- Use and understand offensive and defensive strategies in a game
1.2- Combine skills competently in team and individual sports
As always the formula F+PT=IP applies:
Fitness + Proper Technique = Improved Performance
