A few weeks ago the Elementary students learned to play Australian kickball, a fun and simple way to learn to kick, run, catch, and pass the ball. Last Friday, they played American kickball, after learning about the history of the game. Two teams had the opportunity to play offense and defense, and they learned how to run bases after a fair kick. These games are excellent PE lessons because they show the students how to use ball skills, such as kicking, catching, and throwing, as well as teamwork skills, such as passing to teammates to stop a runner from reaching home. Here are a few pictures of them playing out in the field by the school. What a fun time on a Friday afternoon!
