Indoor Ice-Skating and Hockey

Indoor Hockey

The Indoor Movement Room offered the students a chance to simulate ice-skating indoors today using paper plates on their feet or shoes. After the students were given time to get used to how to move on their skate-plates, some decided it was easier to use bare-feet on the plates to move easier. The students were then introduced to swimming noodles to serve as hockey sticks and a ball to simulate the hockey puck. After the children were able learn how to control their swings and contact with the ball, another ball was introduced and passing was encouraged.
