This module builds on the skills introduced in the 3-5 Volleyball module through skill-specific volleyball lead up activities and games. Passing, serving, and application of strategies/tactics in small-sided games and activities are some of the focus areas. A variety of other learning outcomes are also addressed within the module’s activities including working within a team and providing/receiving skill-based feedback.
The activities within this module develop and reinforce responsible behaviors, while introducing volleyball skills that may be new to some students. All participants are given the opportunity to explore volleyball skills in a fun and engaging environment where all students can feel successful. This can allow all students to also participate in social engagement and building connections with their classmates that can extend beyond physical education.
