Eagle Creek Academy's Gym Classes
Grades 2 & 3: Floor Hockey
The students enjoyed playing a friendly game of floor hockey with the equipment donated by the Detroit Red Wings Foundation. They learned about the equipment, the safety rules, and the different strategies of the game.
Grades 4 & 5: Capture the Flag
Students are playing a game of Capture the Flag. The object of the game is to capture the opposite team's flag, or in this case a rubber chicken. Through this fun game, students learn about teamwork, practice their offensive and defensive strategies, and develop coordination.
Grades 1: Habitat Loss
In class the grade 1 students inquired about various endangered animals. They learned that one of the reasons animals become endangered is the threat to their habitat. This game allowed the students to role play and explore the issue of habitat loss in a fun way.
Kindergarten: Basketball with a Twist
The students enjoyed a game called Backpack Basketball. Six students carried net basket bags of different colors, and all other students had to throw the colored sponge balls in the matching baskets. It's our new favorite game!
Middle school: Volleyball
