Monmouth County Private School – Street Games Elective
The weather is getting warmer and it’s time to go outside and play some games. In this class we will play different outdoor games that children and teenagers have played for ages. Kickball, Wiffle Ball, Kick the Can, Hide and Seek, Tag, Four Square, Hopscotch, and Crack the Whip are just a few examples of street games we might play. On Tuesdays we plan to travel to the Harbor School and play on their campus while on Thursdays we will play at school. Participation is a must. Having fun is also required!
The purpose of this course is to give students the opportunity to explore different outdoor sports and games. They will also learn teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, and cooperation. At the same time, they will build up their physical strength and endurance.
