Suggested materials

Small soft balls, teeball stand, baseball bat and/or cricket bat

Prior learning

Students have participated in a variety of physical activities. They have learnt a number of fundamental movement skills, such as the vertical jump, sprint run, hop and skip, and refined them through practice over time. The teacher has demonstrated the skill of two-handed striking, and provided feedback on correct techniques to the students. Students have learnt the basic techniques involved and have practised and refined the skills, focusing on one component at a time.
