This weeks lab at St. Mary's was an environment theme and we had the kids focused on dribbling and kicking. Our group had cones set up and the students would dribble a basketball in between the cones and then pass the ball at the end to the next person in line. We also used a soccer ball had the students again dribble through the cones and then set the ball down and kick it to the next person in line. The students had an easy time with moving the ball through and then kicking the ball, but with basketball dribbling they would use one hand look down at the ball and slap the ball. We got the students to look up and to cross-over as well. After that, we divided up the gym and played two mini games of soccer. This lab went well and most of the kids loved playing soccer and basketball.
