Activity Procedures:
1. Today’s activity is called Hot Box. The object of the activity is to earn more points than the opposing
team. Points are earned when a team catches a pass inside the “end zone,” which is marked by the 4
cones in the middle of the playing area.
2. You must first complete 6 passes outside of the end zone. You cannot immediately pass it back to the
person who passed it to you.
3. Groups decide which team will start on offense and which team will start on defense. No one on the
defensive team may stand in the end zone at any time. The offensive team may only enter the end zone
after they have completed 6 passes and are trying to score a point.
4. After a team scores a point (or a turnover or interception happens), the teams will quickly switch roles.
The pass count resets after each change of possession.
Grade Level Progression:
6th: Increase the size of the end zone and have students focus on their pancake catch. 7th: Play the activity as described above.
8th: Increase the number of catches needed before scoring a point.
GROWTH MINDSET
(noun)
Defined by psychologist Carol Dweck as a belief that abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work; raw talent and common knowledge are just starting points.
Elyse has a growth mindset. She understands that making mistakes when she practices will help her learn correct form and technique as long as she tries her hardest.

HOT BOX
Skill: I will demonstrate clean cuts in order to get open to receive the disc.
Cognitive: I will understand the importance of moving to open space while using offensive concepts.
Fitness: I will stay engaged throughout the entire activity. Personal & Social Responsibility: I will follow the rules and respect the equipment.
Equipment:
1 flying disc per group of 10 students 8 cones per group of 10 students
1 pinnie per 2 students
Set-Up:
1. Use half of the cones to create 40’x40’ fields, 1
field per group of 10 students.
2. Set up the remaining cones in a 4’x4’ square in
the middle of each field.
3. Divide students into groups of 10, each group
with a disc at a field.
4. Divide each group into 2 teams of 5, 1 team per
group in pinnies.
