Jump Rope for heart kicks off this week!! We will be raising money as a school for the American heart association as we jump during all of our PE classes. Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer in America? All the money raised will be donated to help fund heart research, help kids and adults with heart complications, and help save lives. During class we will start with a free jump followed by the introduction of some partner tricks. One of the things that makes jump rope so great is that you can work with a team and you have to use cooperation in order to accomplish a trick or task. The day will end with four fun long rope stations!
1. Long rope/ Double Dutch
2. Mouse Trap
