The students at the primary school live in a small agricultural community. Thirty-four percent of the residents in this community work in farming/field work with another 16 percent working in local processing plants. Eighty percent of the city's population speaks a non-English language. In addition, 36.9 percent of the town’s residents live in poverty.
Many of the primary students enjoy spending time outdoors playing in designated areas.
Physical Education also help students from different backgrounds find common interests that develop and promote positive relationships.
Teaching students to use gross motor skills to balance and improve coordination helps them build their core muscles. Building core muscles will help children become more stable during movement, thus reducing the likelihood of injury. Balance beams that can be arranged in various patterns help the students use muscle memory to perform various movements while elevated.
Having good dynamic balance can help improve students' coordination and ability to react to sudden changes of direction, as seen in most sporting activities.
Currently, our students use lines on the blacktop, or stationary balance activities to learn how to use weight distribution to keep their balance. The balance beams listed here will give the students an opportunity to move across the surface of the balance beam which require more large muscle group engagement.
