As a culminating project for our Healthy Selves Project Based Learning unit, students participated in a First Grade Triathlon. Students prepared for the triathlon at school earlier this week. Monday, students walked the full course which includes the pool, the parking lot, and the soccer field. They also practiced riding their bikes and scooters on the corresponding segment to be ready for the event. Tuesday, students showed off their swimming skills as they practiced in the pool.
Wednesday was the day of the Triathlon. Students each swam a lap in the pool, transitioned to their scooters and bikes, raced through the cone maze, and ended at the finish line on the sport court. Through this activity, students were able to use their knowledge about staying healthy to perform their best with the physical exercise needed to complete a triathlon. Students were very excited for the event and did an amazing job! Go first graders!
