Throwing and Catching

This week we will be continuing Throwing and Catching skills in the Lower and Upper Elementary classes. The students will continue to develop an understanding of the basic principles of throwing and catching, and demonstrate these skills in simple combinations. They will be able to note how these skills require varying amounts of energy that cause physical changes to the body and identify the opportunities that exist for participation in throwing and catching activities
