An Opportunity for all!
Week 10: June 8, 2020
Sports Day 2020
We have worked on several physical literacy skills for
the last few weeks. Its time to put them to use! This is the time of the
year schools have a sports day. This is when BC Blind Sports hosts a sport
and activity day in many areas of the province. This year we will have
to do it differently of course!
We want you to try some of the activities and skills listed
below. Try as many as you can over the next week or so. Try them with
your families. Try them with your friends online by sending them the list
and challenging them to a contest!
We want you to send to us pictures or videos of you trying
out some of these activities. Show us what equipment you made or used.
You can draw us a picture! Try some of the games we told you about earlier.
We also want to hear about physical activities you have
tried while you are at home. Did you go for a bike ride or try a new sport?
Did you try dancing! Tell us or show us and why you liked it.
These activities can be inside, outside, or even at school
for those who are back!
Keep a list of the ones you liked to do! Try one activity
from each station listed!
