Movement: Soccer with Zach

  • Today during soccer, we pretended to make snowmen. First students stood on their tippy toes and flipped the small cones over. Then we pretended that the soccer balls were snow and the soccer goals were Igloos. Then coach Zach asked the students, what are Igloos?
    • Mishaan: People live in igloos. 
    • Charley: An igloo is an ice shelter.
    • Mia: For penguins! 
    • Tessa: For polar bears!
    • Dylan: Walrus live in the igloos. 
  • After, we rolled the balls onto the small cones and used the tall cones as hats for the snowmen!
