Warm up: 

4 Station Relay:

Set up four cones in a diamond pattern.  Divide class into four groups and line them up behind each of the four cones.  The first player in line at cones 1 and 3 start with a baton.  On “Go”, players holding the baton run and hand off to the player at the next cone before going to the end of that line.  The batons and players advance around the cones until one baton catches the other or time is called.  You can vary methods of traveling between cones (skip, bear crawl, backpedal, etc).  With a smaller group, you can divide the class in half at cones 1 and 3 and have them run past cones 2 and 4 on their way to the other side.

Skill work:

Food is Fuel: Even for Kids, it’s important to start to understand how different foods help our bodies to be healthy and strong: Foods like Carbohydrates and Fats help give our body energy.  Protein helps repair damage and build muscle.  Learning what foods are good sources for Protein, Carbohydrate, and Fat will help us make good choice about what to eat throughout the day.  To practice this, table three cones (or boxes or whatever is convenient) as each of the three macronutrient groups.  Athletes start on a line.  When the trainer calls out a food item (broccoli, fish, avocado, etc), athletes run to the place that they feel best represents the macronutrient category of that food.  Feel free to discuss briefly between rounds and remember that some foods are significant sources of more than one macronutrient group.
