Ready to Launch 3... 2... 1...
Our project is ready to be launched out into space... cyberspace that is.
Andy and I have put together a PE unit we are very proud of. It was really fun doing this unit with the 7th grade students and enjoying their work and their pride in their culture.
The unit is MULTI-CULTURAL GAMES. It is great because students get to learn about their own culture and the culture of others, they gain organizational and teaching skills, and they incorporate technology throughout.
Students did all the research, put together their lesson, taught it to their class and posted it all up on their blog. We took the best of the best and made a wiki for the world to use. It includes the game, country, rules, history, a video, and the student's reflection.
Our hope is that PE teachers and students around the world will use our games in their schools to teach about other cultures. We also hope others from every corner of the globe will contribute themselves by doing a similar project and having their students post their work on this wiki.
We hope you have as much fun with these games as we did!
