We are finishing our unit on locomotor movement where we explored the idea of being efficient with our bodies as we moved on obstacles courses. We learned how to move our bodies without stopping as we chained hops and jumps in succession. We challenged ourselves by increasing the number of obstacles on our courses and experimented in groups coming up with new ideas to move over and around the same obstacle. We had fun playing different games and deciding new rules for these games. We shared our ideas and learned from each other. Next, we will explore manipulative movement and the roles force and timing play when we throw, catch, and kick.
