The worldwide Augustana College experience

Recess in Session!

Today was our first day teaching at the Alpha Boys School. After gathering our frisbees, bats, and balls our PE group felt ready! We met a bit of resistance from the boys (grades 1 and 3) when asking them to learn a game that isn’t futball (soccer).We ended up teaching them “steal the bacon” and introduced them to information about the Olympics for our day tomorrow – mini Olympic Games with the 100m, 4x100m relay, long jump, and discuss with awards for the winners. Hopefully this goes a lot smoother because we are having 5 groups instead of 2. We are all really excited and have a lot of pictures and videos of the games and lesson from today.

Oh, and Tara, Casey and myself are the most beautiful women in the world according to 3rd grade :) and unlike the misbehaved trouble makers the principal made them out to be the boys were VERY nice and respectful! It was a great first day for PE.
