PHYSICAL EDUCATION: Mrs. Koester
I hope you are all finding ways to stay active while you are home! If you are looking for even MORE fun things to do, ask mom or dad to follow me on Twitter at @DawnKoester1 where I have found a million different easy, fun activities.
Here are a few ideas for this week. Even though they are divided into different age groups, you can do the activities from either group. If you have a younger brother or sister, encourage them to do the Kdg - 2nd Grade activities and if you have someone older in your house ask them to help with the 3rd - 5th Grade activity. Get EVERYONE moving!
Try out this Animal Walk - Set a timer and complete each of the challenges for 45 seconds, resting for 15 seconds in between. See how many you can do!
3rd - 5th Grades
Fly Swatter Hockey - This is a great challenge that can get your heart rate up and have a little friendly competition. In the video, they use fly swatters, a small balloon and clothes baskets but you can get creative; try spatulas, a small ball or balled-up sock and a couple of boxes.
Kindergarteners-Photo Scavenger Hunt
How about going outside and taking pictures with a device? I want you to go on a Shape Scavenger Hunt. Take pictures of 3 shapes: a rectangle, a circle, and a triangle. Share your pictures with your family or post them on Seesaw for me to see. Below is an example of a circle picture.
