Last week, PYP students created an original sequence/routine by combining all the gymnastic elements they had learned in class.
Each one of them made a show in front of their peers with travels, balances, jumping & landing, rolling, cartwheels/round-offs or handstand.
PE teacher recorded students’ performances in order to work with them later by watching the videos.
To strengthen their critical thinking, they had to self-assess their own performances and also evaluate their peers.
This activity was called “the culminating experience”. Students achieved self-autonomy and got a consciousness of their athletic skills.
