A week full of fitness last week. Students did a variety of fitness stations, timed runs, beep tests, and other fitness-themed activities. One of the more popular activities was definitely GaGa Ball. This very simple game seems to be taking over online and is definitely worth a try. Our students love it!
GaGa ball is quite simple. Set up a “pit”. We used tables turned on their side. It’s best to make them into a hexagon shape. Use a ball that’s big enough to hit and light enough that it won’t hurt too much when hitting it or being hit by it. Play with as many players as you like. Fill up the pit and then drop the ball to get started. If the ball touches you below the waist you are out. Only underhand striking of the ball is allowed. That’s about it! Check out our instagram for a few short videos of our students playing
Last week was also Exercise Week as part of Wellness Month. We started each day with an “Active Start”. Students did a short 5-10 minute walk of the halls prior to starting the day. Next week our theme is Mindfulness. Students will be “taking 10” as part of a meditation program through the Headspace App.
