Grade Level: K-2

Describe the cues for throwing and catching. Give each student a ball, and have them practice safe catches in their personal space. Give students a challenge such as 10 catches in a row, and as they complete the challenge, assign them to a partner. Each set of partners then assume a new challenge, such as ten catches.
