the animal game

my favorite week of lessons.
your response, "what are those kids doing, and why do they look so funny golfing?"

if i were to say: bat, flamingo, and elephant, would that make it easier to understand?

the kids hit golf balls as three different animals: as bats (with their eyes closed), as flamingos (on one foot), and as elephants (with one arm as a trunk). it makes a little more sense now, right?

aside from being really fun, it helps promote balance as well as strength and stability in different parts of the body.

we also played some tic-tac-toe.

don't you wish you could be in my class? :)
