Part of Lesson Plan: Muscular System
Activity Overview / Details
Prior to begining this activity view and print pictures of different workout machines and equipment from a website such as Sport Authority.
Arrange students in groups of 4-5. Pass out half sheet directions for the "Get Some Muscles" group activity. Read the directions out load and go over the instructions in detail. Pass out one workout machine or equipment printed from the Sport Authority website. Ask student to FIRST complete the questions listed on the directions sheet prior to begining the design of the project. Once each group has shown the completed questions they are ready to begin. Cut a large piece of butcher paper for each group. Students will then begin to make their advertisment based on the workout machine or equipment assigned paying close attention to the muscles that are used to perform this movement.
** A fun piece to add to this advertisment is to ask students to find a "catchy" name for their piece of equipment.
Example: The Schwarzenegger Maker
