So far this year PE has been interesting, challenging and different but as always full of fun. The kids have been champs! We’ve had hot weather, smoke filled sky’s and lots of sunshine. The kids have been good sports and have embraced our new situation. It’s been fun to see how well kids adapt to change and how change can be good for all of us sometimes. We’ve played a variety of games, some new games and some old favorites with new twists. Star Wars frisbee, guardians of the galaxy, Spongebob tag, pickle ball and an outdoor circuit training Obstacle course to name a few.
Sixth grade had the opportunity to have Breathe-zy come and teach about healthy lungs. They learned about what helps to keep our lungs healthy, and what harms our lungs. They also got to see examples of what healthy and unhealthy lungs look like. In a couple of weeks, sixth graders will get to dissect real pig lungs.
It’s the beginning of a new month and we still have amazing weather! With Chalk the Block coming up, we decided we would take some practice for this week’s Fun Friday! We loved seeing inspiration before we could create our own drawings. We enjoyed creating art outside on such a nice day and working together on creating masterpieces, some on our own as well! We will be ready for Chalk the Block!
Me and my class did a very fun, but challenging activity. Each table of 5 students made a cup pyramid. First, we all had a stack of five cups. We also had 5 rubber bands tied to a rubber band in the middle. We all had to pull on the rubber bands on the sides to get a cup. We all pulled the rubber bands to stretch out the rubber band in the middle around and onto the cup. Then, we let go to tighten it. We all then carefully lifted the rubber band and the cup. Then, we put each cup in place. When we were finished there were three cups on the bottom, 2 in the middle, and one on the top.
