Last week we kicked off our Rhythmic Gymnastics UOI in G5.
Beforehand, I asked learners to think about this question:
How do We Move our Bodies More Efficiently and Safely?
You can click on your child’s class to read their thoughts:
During the week, learners have been practicing several gymnastics skills such as balances, rolls, and jumps. This is the first time for them to have a rhythmic gymnastics unit, however, they can connect their prior knowledge gained from learning and practicing these floor skills in artistic gymnastics in previous years.
I really like using provocations for student’s learning so I had them watching a short clip of the Worlds Championship of Rhythmic Gymnastics to get a better picture of what this sport looks like.
Our central idea for this unit is:
“Body control, smooth transitions and a variety of elements, helps to enhance a gymnastics performance.”
This week, G5 gymnasts will inquire into how to use different equipment, such a ball, a ribbon or a hoop and to combine it with different gymnastics skills.
I will be adding more pictures and short videos of learners as the unit goes on.
