Lab 1

The first lab at St. Mary's was fun trying to meet some of the young kids that go to school there. Lab 1 was about stability and evaluating some of the the kids on their ability to run, gallop, and hop. Grade level of the kids plays a big role in evaluating motor behavior, therefore most kids won't have fully developed their motor abilities until about 3rd or 4th grade.

I was in the main gym with the older kids and we played knock-out for a while. There was mostly boys so they all loved the challenge with me in the game. I assumed that we would play from the free throw line but all the boys were into the 3-pt knock-out so i thought that was cool that they wanted to shoot further away. Overall, the first week went well and it wasn't hard getting the older boys to like playing basketball, because thats what they love to do most.
