3rd-5th grade: Will be learning soccer skills. They learn how to dribble, trap and kick. At the end of the unit students will get to play a mini version of soccer and learn some soccer rules.
Here is some soccer trivia: Soccer began in England in the mid-1800's, and was originally played by the higher, more aristocratic English classes in their boarding schools and private clubs. The ease and inexpense of the sport quickly moved it ahead as a sport for the masses however. Today soccer is ranked as one of the world's leading sports for commoners.
K-2nd grade: Students will be working with bean bags to improve coordination and body movement skills.
