New for After School!

Playthings from the Past: Indoor

Playthings from the Past: Outdoor

Recommended grades K-6

Students will play some outside games that they may be familiar with, and others that might be new to them! They will use their motor skills to toss a grace and beat their opponent in Egg and Spoon Race, and their math skills in a game of Bowl Toss. While these games are great to play outside, they can also be played in a gymnasium if there is bad weather!
