Just Dance!

  1. 1. Just Dance! Miss Burgess'  6th Grade Physical Education Class
  2. 2. Curriculum-Framing Questions Students are asked essential, unit, and content questions throughout the project. Essential: Engage students Unit: Connect a unit or project Content: Fact-based
  3. 3. Essential Question 1. What would the world be like if we eliminated Physical Education?
  4. 4. Unit Question 1. How do you put your feelings and emotions in to dance?
  5. 5. Content Question 1. What is a "box step" move in dance?
  6. 6. Unit Summary First, students will work together in groups of five to create a dance of their own. Once they finish the dance, students will practice their dance and learn how to use a heart rate monitor. After each practice, students will record their results on a chart they make. This will show students that after dance, their heart rate does elevate and calories are burned. Once the unit is coming to an end, students will put up flyers and invite the community to watch their "Just Dance" performance. This will give students the opportunity to show everyone what they have learned and created throughout the unit!
