October 31, 2014: Gym

We just finished our unit on locomotor movement where we explored how we can challenge ourselves when we move. We built different types of obstacle courses in small groups and as a class and figured out how to change the courses to make them more challenging. We used our mastery of the hops and jumps we learned in the past to experiment at stations to discover new combinations and new ways to move. We played games as a group which challenged us physically and also creatively as we changed the rules of these games. Next, we will explore how various factors affect our precision when we manipulate objects while throwing, catching, kicking, and using a hockey stick.
