This week we will be introducing parachute activities to learn the fundamental motor skills used in daily activities. Students will learn and perform fine motor skills (hands/wrists) movements by making small waves with the parachutes. Students will advance to using gross motor skills (walking/running/jumping) movements by walking with the parachutes as a team and/or trading parachutes.
