Grade Level: 7


  • Physical Education/Games
  • Physical Education/Skill-Related Fitness

Duration: 45-50 minutes Description: This activity is an integration of two sports, basketball and golf! Students practice their shooting skills and use a scoring system taken from the game of golf.

1.  Each student will improve his/her level of physical fitness as well as his/her knowledge of shooting a basketball.
2.  Each student will improve his/her self-image through positive reinforcement given by peers and the instructor.
3.  Students will grow in their personal development. Each student will learn cooperation and teamwork when dealing with peers and will be taught to compete fairly and appropriately. In addition, students will be willing to recognize, accept, and appreciate individual differences within a
diverse learning group.
4.  Students will learn playing rules and strategies (with at least 70% accuracy) associated with physical activities presented in class.
5.  Students will learn basic skills and movement patterns associated with physical activities presented in class.
6.  Students will develop a sense of fair play and feel a sense of accomplishment when they do their best to achieve a goal.

1. Each student will perform the basic warm-up exercises with 100% accuracy.
2. Each student will increase his or her level of fitness by running one lap of the track without stopping.

Psychomotor and Affective:
Each student will participate in lead-up games and activities to prepare them to play basketball.

Psychomotor and Cognitive:
Each student will be able to correctly shoot a basketball as demonstrated by performance in drills.

Before playing basketball golf, have students do warm-up exercises for about five minutes: jacks, toe touches, sit-ups, and push-ups. Have students line up on the track (if available) and instruct them to run one lap without stopping. How to play :
Basketball golf is played like golf, using pars to keep score. In basketball golf, one station is set up on each half of a basketball court (see diagram in handout). Each station has nine positions to shoot from (you can use tape to label each position on the floor). Divide students into groups of four, with each group receiving a score card and a pencil. Beginning at the first position, each student shoots until he/she makes the shot or misses five shots. Another student in the group records the number of shots taken, no more than 5 (students should take turns recording the scores). After students have completed the first position, then they move on to position #2 and so on. After students have completed all nine positions, they may tally their scores to see who came closest to par. Time permitting, students can switch stations and repeat the score keeping process.

Assessment: Observe students’ participation in basketball golf. Collect students’ score sheets and see how many students came close to par (and how many were under or over par).
