Fitness Around the World
As the school year gets under way, we look for ways to better understand our community, our nation, and the world. Knowing about other countries helps our students be more globally responsible as they grow.
Every subject at PRMS finds ways to engage our students in global studies…even Fun Fitness.
This year, Fun Fitness teacher Mrs. Paula Willis, has added globalization to her classroom as her sixth grade students completed project about the physical fitness activities in other countries.
Students were asked to pick a country and research how that country stays physically fit. Students researched games children play, the sports that are popular in the country they chose and what other activities keeps people moving.
Projects included videos by students demonstrating sports popular in the country they chose, posters, and reports.
