Warm-up activities are the first component of a CATCH PE lesson. They are short 3-5 minute activities designed to prepare students for more vigorous movement. These activities require either no equipment, or equipment that will also be used in subsequent activities.
Cool-down activities are of short duration that take place near the end of the lesson. They are designed to provide closure, retrieve equipment, and cool down students.
The activities in this section can be used either as a warm-up or cool-down. To use the activity as a cool-down, simply reduce the intensity of the movement.
