Before we start the lesson lets watch a short video about lifting weights. While you watch the video take notes using an application like note pad on the steps needed to dead weight properly:
Compare your notes with your partner and share your ideas with the class.
Giving Instructions (Essay Structure)
When giving instructions use the following 3 paragraph essay:
Should include 3 sentences
A general sentence possibly describing the sport you will be describing
A sentence talking about the picture and what it shows
A thesis statement describing what you will be doing
Describe the different steps if what your describing. Remember to use sequence words such as: first, second, third & finally
Make sure your conclusions starts with a concluding statement (for example to sum up, to conclude). Finish your conclusion with a general observation about the steps you have described. “To conclude we can see that to lift weights you need three basic steps”
