Roller Blade Unit in PE at Maple Grove
4th and 5th grade students are currently participating in an in-line skating unit. This unit has allowed the students to take part in a great cardio-respiratory workout. In addition, it has enhanced our student’s motor skills in the coordination and balance areas. To prevent injury, safety equipment is used by each student. Children are required to wear a helmet, wrist guards, kneepads and elbow pads. Whether the students are beginners or advanced skaters, all students have been learning the basic skills, such as starting, stopping, balancing, forward skating and safety. On their last day skating, the students will have the opportunity to challenge themselves by going around cones, under jump ropes and through tumbling mats. Watching the progress has been exciting!
