Our school serves almost 500 students, K-sixth grade. I have the pleasure to lead these students in three physical education classes a week. They participate in a variety of forms from sport to skill to physical fitness. Our school understands the physical, emotional, and social importance that physical education gives children to become successful young adults.
My students value physical education and the opportunities it gives them, not only outside of the realm of school, but also the impact it makes in the classroom when students are fit and healthy.
This project is to get our students into playing both tennis and badminton. We are lucky enough to have the nets and some equipment for these activities but we want to have enough for all students to play.
Both tennis and badminton are great live long sports that require and improve eye hand coordination and all the motor skills that we learn in physical education.
Having enough for all students is always the difficult part.
With this equipment our students will be able to participate in these two racquet games and learn a sport that they might not normally play without the physical education class.
