I absolutely love to see my students engaged and working together. Children today need physical activity and teamwork more than ever! They get so excited when they enter the gym with new or special equipment set out for a fun filled activity. For some kids, gym time is the only time they get to truly express themselves and release built up energy from their busy school day. This project will surely build life skills for them all and increase their weekly physical activity!
My students and I need multiple longer length jump ropes for our jump rope unit that is coming up in January. We have always spent time using a single jump rope, but we have not been able to practice using longer jump ropes in teams of three or four! The students will be able to improve on their jumping skills, coordination, and overall cardiovascular health! The jump ropes will also provide great opportunities for teamwork and cooperation between the students.
The frisbee game will also provide multiple opportunities for the students to work together, stay engaged, and improve on their aiming skills.
Frisbee throwing can be a challenge for some students, and the set of games will motivate them to work harder on this skill! The students and I will also enjoy collaborating with each other while staying engaged. Lastly, the set of frisbee games will be great to use outside!
