    There are many possibilities what you could make a 9 year old do.
    But what is best done at this age?
    NEw motorpatterns are leanred very easy at this age.
    To build strength at this age is ahrd due to the hormonal set up.
    So by teaching the child new skills you will get the most out of the time and energy invested.
    These are some momvements I would make the child do if it is motivated:

    - Sprinting
    - Jumping
    - various gymnastic movements
    - Rope climbs
    - OHS (First with a brommstick later progress to a light bar)
    - Cleans ( Brommstick -> light bar)

    The best way to "teach" the child is probably by doing those movements and then let the child repeat what it just saw. At such a young age humans are acutally pretty good at reproducing movements they see.
    The latest research on education says that the most important rule is to lead by example.
    Of course some hints on form here and there won't hurt.
