Physical Education with T. Bob
PE class has the 4th graders participating in Pillow Polo Hockey. It is a great activity to build a student's cardio-respiratory endurance, muscular strength and flexibility as well as their ability to cooperate with teammates to achieve a common goal. In this unit, students will learn the rules and essential movement skills in order to successfully participate in a game of Pillow Polo Hockey.
The beginning of the new year will find the 4th grade starting their unit on basketball. They will learn the various fundamentals of the game including dribbling, passing, and shooting. They will incorporate these skills playing various activities such as Dribble Flag Tag, Scooter Basketball, and Basketball Shootout.
