Today, we are playing another one of our favorite games in PE! This one is called Avengers End Game! Students are trying to collect all the infinity stones to play Thanos (Me) for the last stone (mind Stone). To collect stones, they battle other teams playing Rock Paper Scissors. The winner takes the stone back to their universe! Our focus is communication, hustle, cooperation, and teamwork! #dragonpride #ignite #avengers #perocks
In PE, we played a game called Sink the Ship! The students were on 4 different teams/ships, and their goal was to work together to knock down the other ships’ cones. The cones were what kept their ships afloat. If all of a ship’s cones were knocked down, they would sink to the bottom of the ocean and have to do 10 reps of an exercise (lunges, push-ups, crunches, calf raises, squats, mountain climbers) to get back into the game. There were blockers, cannonball retrievers on lifeboats, and cannonball launchers! This is one of our faves! #teamwork #cooperation#perocks #sinktheship#dragonpride#ignite
Purcell Public Schools will be closed Wednesday, February 5 due to inclement weather.
