C. Equipment needed:
a. A beach ball
D. Activity Description following guidelines for task analysis. How will you explain to
your participants how the activity will go?
a. Buy a beach ball and inflate it.
b. All the participants form a circle in a standing position facing each other.
c. Starting with one person, they toss the ball up into the air and call out the first
letter of the alphabet (letter A)
d. Second person (doesnt have to follow any order) hits the ball (not catching it)
and call out the second letter of the alphabet (letter B)
e. The same participant cant hit the ball twice in a row.
f. Continue on following steps d and e with the remaining letters of the alphabet
g. The ball cant touch the floor
h. If the ball drops start from letter A again until the whole alphabet is recited
E. Primary interaction pattern(s) (activity analysis): See Attachment
F. One researched adaptation specific to a disability group:
This activity could be adapted for participants who have lower extremity
impairment, such as paralyzation, edema, pain, and ambulation. Participants with lower
extremity impairments may have the following symptoms: risk of fall, limited range of
motion, and decreased muscle strength. Therefore the uses of assist devices and increase
in activity time is included.
Changes to the activity can ensure that participants can fully engage in the
activity. Instead of being in a standing position, participants can be seated in a circle
facing each other. Participants are allowed to hold onto the ball while reciting. They can
toss and catch the ball to each other after reciting the letter. This slows down the speed of
this activity and can also strengthen the participant's upper extremity muscles. To
challenge up this activity, instead of reciting the alphabet, participants need to call out
words that follow the alphabet.
Ex: The first person who catches the ball will call out a noun that starts with the
letter A, such as Apple. Then they throw the ball to anyone in the circle and the second
person will call out something that starts with the letter B, such as Baseball. The third
person can say, Candy. Continue on with the whole alphabet. Participants who have had
their turns have to wait for two rounds before having another turn.
