Did you ever play that?Where you get in a circle around a parachute and shake it so it floats in the air, then you'd run underneath it.
What was the point of that game? What were we supposed to learn? I wonder. Still it was much better than dodge ball or kick ball.
It'll be another busy day tomorrow.
Any photos of Toby and his new "do"? Have a safe trip and have fun teaching !
It was initially designed as part of a range of activities, like the one with the giant ball to be kept afloat.
Afterwards the teacher would/should debrief about what it took to make the exercise successul.. But I think a lot of people taught it just because kids enjoyed it.
Good Luck with the trip.
i never played the parachute game, but I hated gym class in general - physical competition, big butchy (female)gym teachers, public showers, very scary in my teens!!
